Event description

Description

Chartered Accountants' Hall, headquarters of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) in the City of London, was built between 1890 and 1893. The original Hall, fronting on Moorgate Place, was designed by the architect John Belcher RA.

Described by Sir Nikolaus Pevsner as 'eminently original and delightfully picturesque', it is a fine example of Victorian neo-Baroque which draws its inspiration from the work of the Italian Renaissance. As the Institute's membership grew, so did the building. The first extension was built by Belcher's partner, John James Joass, in 1930-31 as a continuation of the original design.

A more radical expansion took place when William Whitfield was commissioned to extend the building and provide a Great Hall for large gatherings. The new headquarters was opened in May 1970. His design juxtaposes the clear, simple lines of contemporary architecture with the more ornate work of his predecessors.

Led by Sharon Grant and one of ICAEW's guides. Sharon is a LH Member, a staff member at ICAEW and the Chair of AGRA (The Association of Genealogisits and Researchers in Archives).
