Armourers' Hall
Tuesday 18 February 2020

Armourers’ Hall is a striking Georgian building built in the neo-Palladian style just a short walk from Bank Station and seconds away from Moorgate.  It is one of the few livery halls to have escaped The Blitz and is the home of The Armourers’ & Brasiers’ Company, founded in 1322.

Our morning tour is conducted by the Clerk and last about 90 minutes.  He will talk on Livery Companies in general (the Armourers' and Brasiers’ in particular), as well as the present Hall and the history and role of armour in medieval warfare.   Artefacts include a portrait of the infamous Ann Vavasour, as well as armour and clocks etc.

The cost of the tour is £25.00 and the booking form can be downloaded here.
