Capacity and Layout

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 instantly recognisable from modern films such as The King’s Speech and Goldeneye. Their exquisite in-house catering, and the service provided by their 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.
Set beneath the dramatic ceiling paintings, depicting Shakespearean scenes by 19th century artist Herbert Draper, the Livery Hall is undoubtedly one of the City’s finest event spaces. Having been used in films as a double for Buckingham Palace, the room displays the Drapers’ Company’s collection of royal portraits and some of the larger pieces from its silver collection.
The Livery Hall’s dining furniture includes rail back chairs, over half of which date back to William IV.
The Livery Hall provides a breath-taking and versatile space for every type of occasion from banquets, fashion shows, concerts, and opera recitals, through to meetings, presentations and cocktail parties.
