Located in the heart of the City of London, Drapers’ Hall provides a majestic setting for any event. On the site of the 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. Rebuilt after the Great Fire of 1666, it was partially destroyed again by fire in 1772, rebuilt, and later altered by the Victorians.
Steeped in history and instantly recognisable from films such as The King’s Speech and Goldeneye, the magnificent interiors create a stunning backdrop. This, combined with the service provided by their experienced and dedicated team, creates a special type of event.
The venue can comfortably hold up to 700 guests, by using all banqueting rooms and spaces for a reception, 276 for a seated dinner and from 300–350 for theatre style presentations or concerts. Hence Drapers’ Hall is perfect location for all types of events, from meetings and presentations to operas, fashion shows and banquets.
