Livery Halls – the Perfect Venue!

If you’re looking to organise a function – whether personal or business – consider hosting it at one of the 54 Livery Halls in the City of London. Members can sometimes take advantage of their Livery status to book. Steeped in history and tradition, each Hall is set to impress! Many also have beautiful gardens – hidden treasures – and a few like Skinners’ Hall benefit from a superb roof terrace, ideal fora summer’s drinks reception as it was for our Ball earlier this year.
To find out which Halls are available to hire, email our Clerk Virginia Rounding
