Venue DescriptionSkinners Hall was used from as early as the 13th century by skinners discussing their trade. The first building was known in those days as the Copped Hall, but this was destroyed by the Great Fire of 1666 and it was rebuilt the following year as Skinners Hall.
Some parts of the building date back to this time, but the cellars are even older. It was rented by the East India company at the end of the 17th century, and the building was improved over the coming decades before suffering from bomb damage during World War II.
Now the building is the perfect venue for a luxurious Christmas event in one of London's most historic settings. Welcome your guests in the Inner Courtyard, which dates back to 1670, with its beautiful red brick and stone cloister. This leads through to the Outer Hall, where you will find such features as the striking plaster ceiling, a bell dating back to 1190, and a stunning glass chandelier.
The Banqueting Hall dates back to 1670 and is embellished by paintings by Sir Frank Brangwyn. You can also choose to host your event in the Old Court Room, which was restored in 2012 and now has a sprung dance floor. The Court Room with its Virginian Cedar Wood panelling is yet another option for your stylish Christmas event.
Beautiful art and coats of armour add to the country house feel and create a magical Christmas atmosphere in which to enjoy the finest food, wine and entertainment and to celebrate an evening in style.
