Over its six-and-a-half-century history, the Worshipful Company of Haberdashers has gradually moved away from its historical involvement in the trade of haberdashery and developed into a supporter of schools and education in England and Wales. When it was opened by the Queen in 2002, Haberdasher’s Hall was the first new livery hall in the Square Mile for almost 40 years. Designed by Michael Hopkins and Partners, the Hall and associated meeting rooms and offices are built round a cloistered courtyard, entered through the façade of Market View. The Livery Hall is clad in North American Oak with stainless steel tracery in the roof replicating medieval hammer beams. Visits can be booked and the Hall takes part in the annual Open House London event, which takes place in September.
