Mansion HouseMansion House, the Palace of the London Mayor, was originally for the Lord Mayor to represent the City in appropriate style, Sir Crispin Gascoigne was the first Lord Mayor to take up residence in 1752. This fine example of a grand Georgian town palace continues to fulfil this function more than two centuries later. After the Great Fire of London in 1666 plans were discussed to create the palace but the actual building did not begin until 1739. After much discussion over the selection of the site, the design and the architect a classical Palladian style was decided on with ornate gold trim Corinthian columns and the grand Egyptian Hall for banqueting. The title of this great hall can cause confusing as it is not and never has been Egyptian in style, instead it's a reflection of the Roman dining halls in Egypt. Now, its large, high ceilinged spaces make it a suitably grandiose site for some of the City of London's official functions. The most recent of a number of extensive repair programmes was in 1991-3 and the result earned a number of conservation awards.
