What a beautiful place! A lot of interesting history here, owned by an association of drapers. Even King William of Orange used to be a member for some time. This hall went through various changes after the great fire of London, another fire and the Blitz. It's currently used as a venue that can be rented out for weddings, events and so on. I even saw Sir Francis Drake featured in a stained glass window! This hall also has the biggest windows I've seen in a while, as well as beautiful paintings and decorative ceilings.

The space is gorgeous, full of incredible works of art and stunning architectural details. Staff is friendly and attentive. The history of the hall is incredible, dating back to Thomas Cromwell's ownership, the purchase by Henry VIII, and all of the subsequent fires that reshaped the building I visited for an alumni dinner and everyone agreed that it exceeded previous venues.

Events at Drapers' Hall

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.
Drapers’ Hall boasts magnificent interiors creating a stunning backdrop to every occasion. While steeped in history, the Hall is recognisable from films & TV programmes such as The King’s Speech, The Apprentice and The Great British Menu. Our exquisite in-house catering, and the service provided by our experienced and dedicated team, will ensure that your event is perfect in every way.
The venue can comfortably hold up to 700 guests for a standing reception when using all rooms, 276 for a seated dinner and 300-350 for theatre style presentations or concerts. This makes Drapers’ Hall the perfect location for all types of events.
