2002 Visit to Drapers’ Hall

Friday 31 January 10:30 AM to 12:45 PM

Price for single attendee: £15.00

The 1890s front is free commercial Northern Renaissance. Red brick and stone above. Polished granite shop fronts below. The Drapers’ presence is signalled by Jackson’s entrance. We will be given a tour of this amazingly untouched building, looking at its dramatic interior which includes the unusually deep basement, reached by a circular stairwell. Its gold mosaic decoration of 1900 is a relic of Lyons’ monster restaurant here, the largest in the City when new. Jackson’s main staircase is a feast of delights among which is carving by Farmer & Brindley. The main Livery suite is on the first floor - equally richly and lavishly decorated with elaborate work by Williams, JD Crace, White Allom, Jackson and others. Meet at Drapers’ Hall via the Clerk’s Office. The entrance is located on Throgmorton Avenue, London EC2N 2DQ. Tube: Bank. Rail: Moorgate. £15 including tea/coffee. Booking required.*
