Located in the heart of the City of London, Drapers’ Hall provides a majestic setting for any event. On the site of the present Drapers’ 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.
The venue can comfortably hold up to 700 guests for a reception, 270 for a seated dinner and 350-400 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.
