Tallow Chandlers'

Tallow Chandlers' Hall is set deep in historic London. It sits on the buried walls of the Roman Governor's Palace, and is a stone's throw from the London Stone, the ancient heart of London.

On this page:

    The Hall's public rooms can be hired for dinners, luncheons, meetings and formal briefings, with 4 event spaces available for hire.

    The Parlour

    This beautiful room dates from the seventeenth century, when Sir Joseph Sheldon, Lord Mayor of London in 1676, commissioned the oak panelling. The Parlour can receive guests before or after meals, or host smaller and more intimate luncheons or dinners. It can also be fitted out as a conference room for important business meetings.

    The Livery Hall

    Seating up to a hundred guests, this is one of the most beautiful Halls in the City. The elegant ceiling dates from 1868, when the original roof timbers were replaced. The south east corner of the Banqueting Hall was damaged during the Second World War, but was completely renovated between 1947 and 1955. Heraldic stained glass and fine paintings, combined with fine oak panelling, create the perfect atmosphere for Livery dinners or indeed any special occasion.
