Great Hall

This is the centrepiece of the venue, where the decorations and plasterwork are seen at their grandest and which features a Minstrels’ Gallery at one end.

The work is of a magnificence rarely attempted in this age, and provides a superb setting for the traditional banquets for which the City of London is renowned. Pairs of pilasters with capitals in early Corinthian style arcade the walls, with sunken Panels between them.

A full entablature, richly ornamented and subtly picked out in colour, conceals lighting which illuminates a grand coved ceiling of exciting intricacy, both in colour and form, rising to a clear height of over 27 feet.
