Stationers’ Hall is a unique venue that provides a blend of history, tradition and gracious hospitality in the City of London. Ideally located close to St. Paul’s, Stationers’ Hall offers an exclusive range of charming, historic reception rooms of individual character.

In 1403 the Mayor and Aldermen of the City of London approved the formation of a fraternity or Guild of Stationers (booksellers who copied and sold manuscript books and writing materials and limners who decorated and illustrated them). Each appointed a warden to control and regulate them. By the early 16th century printers had joined The Stationers' Company and by the mid century the printers had more or less ousted the manuscript trade. In 1557 the Guild received a Royal Charter of Incorporation and in 1559, the right to wear a distinctive livery. They became a livery company, numbered 47 in precedence.

Nowadays these rooms can be used independently or as a suite and can be equipped easily with your own lighting, staging and audio/visual systems. From private luncheons for up to 20 in the elegant Ante-room to formal receptions for 400 in the splendour of the Livery Hall, each event will receive the same high quality personal attention and efficient service.

The Garden is a unique space in such a central city location and ideal for summer parties, BBQ’s and pre-dinner/post-conference drinks receptions.

Stationers' Hall has a civil license for marriages and civil partnership ceremonies. The Court Room and Livery Hall are ideal for this type of occasion for up to 120 and 200 guests respectively.
