Located in the heart of the City of London, Drapers’ Hall provides a majestic setting for any event. On the site of the present Drapers’ Hall, once part of the Augustinian Priory, Thomas Cromwell built his palace in the 1530s. After his execution, the property was purchased by the Guild of Drapers in 1543 from Henry VIII.
The grandeur of Drapers’ Hall demands the highest level of service and catering for each and every event. Frequented by royalty and heads of state, the venue has perfected the art of fine dining with impeccable cuisine provided by the Drapers’ own team of celebrated chefs.
Set beneath the dramatic ceiling paintings depicting Shakespearean scenes by 19th-century artist Herbert Draper, the Livery Hall is undoubtedly one of the city’s finest event spaces. Having been used in films as a double for Buckingham Palace, the room displays the Drapers’ Company’s collection of royal portraits and some of the larger pieces from its silver collection. The Livery Hall’s dining furniture includes rail back chairs, over half of which date back to William IV. The hall can accommodate up to 260 guests for a seated dinner, 300 for a conference or 700 for a standing reception.
