Information about the Goldsmiths' Hall visit and booking form

12 NOON

The Goldsmiths' Livery Company received its Royal Charter in 1327. One of London’s hidden architectural treasures, the present Hall was designed by Philip Hardwick after 1922. It narrowly escaped complete destruction by a bomb in 1941. It was faithfully restored after 1945 and internally modified and retains much of the charm of an urban palazzo. It regulates the craft of the goldsmith, and exhibitions and events promote contemporary jewellers and silversmiths.

Prior booking is required and a charge is made.
