About Armourers' Hall

Description

Formed out of old medieval trade guilds, some of London's livery halls have been around since the Middle Ages, making them among the city's oldest and grandest events venues. Armourers' Hall is one such livery hall - this old establishment is the historic home of London's Worshipful Company of Armourers and Brasiers, and has been here since 1346, which means it has survived events like the Blitz and the Great Fire of London.

History fans will love this Grade II-listed building and ancient monument. It’s well suited to dramatic banquets, presentations, receptions and wine tastings, with a host of attractive function rooms to choose from. The Livery Hall is the largest space, featuring 16th and 17th-century armour, George II chandeliers and a Men-At-Arms candelabrum. The latter has been in use since the 1750s and makes Armourers' Hall one of only two livery halls in London where guests dine by candlelight. 

For smaller events, consider The Library with its quiet, cosy atmosphere and ornate mahogany bookcases, or the elegant Court Room, with its beautiful Regency banqueting table, and Dutch and Elizabethan paintings lining the walls. 

Last but certainly not least, there's the Gold Drawing Room, so called beacuse of its golden yellow walls and rich decoration. Huge windows bathe the room in natural light during the day, and in the evening the room is illuminated by two incredible 19th century chandeliers. There's history here too - a painting of Sir Henry Lee (champion of Queen Elizabeth I) is accompanied by a suit of Sir Henry’s field armour, made by a guild armourer many centuries ago.

All of these rooms make a unique backdrop for a large or small private dinner, and Armourers' Hall turns to expert caterers like Mosimann's and Alexander & Bjorck to provide food. You can, of course, request your own caterers should you wish - get in touch with the events team at Armourers' Hall for more details.
