Tour of Fishmongers' Hall
Mon 9 January 2017, 14:00 – 16:00 GMT
The Fishmongers' Company is one of the "Great Twelve" Livery Companies, which has been in existence for over 700 years. As well as a unique history and rich architectural heritage, the Fishmongers' Company is home to many valuable artefacts and paintings, including the dagger which it was once believed William Walworth used to kill Wat Tyler. You can also see Pietro Annigoni's famous 1955 portrait of Her Majesty the Queen. One of the Company’s greatest assets is the Grade I listed Hall on the north bank of the Thames at London Bridge. Destroyed in the Great Fire and horribly damaged during the Blitz, today the hall is in magnificent shape and an unmistakable landmark on the bank of the Thames.
Tea, coffee and biscuits included.
