Leathersellers’ Hall and many of its predecessors have been located at St Helen’s Place, Bishopsgate, since the 16th century.

History of the Halls

There have been seven Leathersellers’ Halls in the Company’s history. Stretching from the first Hall, located on the south side of London Wall, to the second and subsequent Halls on the site of the former Priory of St Helen in Bishopsgate, they have been the home of the Leathersellers for five and a half centuries, remaining the site of business, stewardship, and hospitality throughout despite the effects of fire, flood and redevelopment.

"Continuity and renewal have been the two most important themes underlying the designs for the seventh Leathersellers’ Hall."
