Goldsmiths' HallAn 1835 (William IV) Renaissance building rebuilt by Philip Hardwick, containing portraits. Although this building only dates from the 1830s, inside the Court Room is panelled with the original panelling from the 1669 hall. The Goldsmiths' Company, set up to promote and support the crafts of goldsmithing, silversmithing and jewellery, has been located here since 1339. Mainly the Hall is not open to the public however a number of Open Days are held during the year when guided tours of the Hall are arranged. Tours take place between 12 noon and 2pm and last approximately one hour. Each tour can accommodate up to 50 people and is free of charge. Call City Information Office on 020 7332 1456 to book a tour. The Hall can also be hired for meetings, conferences, concerts, dinners and other functions.
