Apothecaries' Hall

Visit | Apothercaries' Hall

Thursday 24 November 2011 - 13:50 until 13:50

The original Apothecaries' Hall was built in the mid-17th century. After it was destroyed by the Great Fire of London in 1666, The Worshipful Society of Apothecaries of London immediately set about re-building the Hall.

Work was completed in 1672 and included an 'elaboratory' for the first ever large=-scale manufacture of drugs. It is the oldest extant livery company hall in the city, with the first-floor structure structure and arrangement of the Great Hall, Court Room and Parlour remaining as re-built in 1668-70. It houses many fine examples of paintings, furniture and apothecary jars from the period.
