Visit: Clothworkers' Hall

  • Clothworkers' Hall |
  •  |
Founded in 1528, the Clothworkers’ Company was the first livery company to be honoured by the admission of a royal freeman, King James I. Portraits of prominent members – including Samuel Pepys – are on display, as well as some stunning 18th-century Brussels tapestries. The current Hall, opened in 1958, is the sixth to have been built on the site, and is furnished in the classical style, evoking its past grandeur and historical importance. This private visit is conducted by archivist Jessica Collins: after a tour of the ceremonial rooms, visitors are given the opportunity to see a small selection of the Company’s archives, including plate from one of the largest and oldest collections in London.
