Welcome to Our Historic Hall
The Clothworkers’ Company has occupied this site, near Fenchurch Street Station, for nearly 500 years.
The Company’s third Hall was destroyed in the Great Fire of London, and it’s Victorian home (the fifth Hall) was bombed during the Blitz. The present Hall is thus The Company’s sixth home to stand on the very same spot as its five predecessors. It opened in 1958, but the interiors were extensively refurbished in 1984-85 by Donald Insall Associates.
We are delighted to share our historic archive, collections, and building with visitors and researchers, and offer a range of public tours and other events throughout the year.
