Come along on Friday 30th May for a tour of Saddlers' Hall.
About Saddlers' Hall
In the heart of the City of London, just a few yards from St. Paul’s Cathedral, stands the magnificent hall of the Worshipful Company of Saddlers.
Built in a neo classical style, the current (and 4th) Hall of the Saddlers Company stands on land that has been occupied by each incarnation of the Hall since 1395.
The Guild became a Company when a Royal Charter of Incorporation was granted by King Edward III in 1363. The City granted the Company the right to regulate the trade of saddle-making; all saddlers in and within two miles of the City were subject to the Company's regulations.
Nowadays the Company retains strong affiliations with the saddlery trade, it supports many good causes and has strong links with the Household Cavalry, as well as with other regiments and Livery Companies traditionally involved with leather or horses.
Cost for the tour is £5 per person (payable on the day) and includes tea & coffee in the hall when we arrive.
Afterwards we will head to a local pub for a chat over a drink.
If you can't see us outside the station, please call.
Look out for the group sign -
