Merchant Taylor's Hall is a historic wedding venue situated in the heart of the City of London, England. This grand and storied property has all the trappings of an English country house, but is conveniently situated within the hustle and bustle of the country's capital. This makes it a rare gem and sets it apart from other venues. Built in the 14th century, parts of the original building remain, creating a romantic and retro ambience that is unrivalled in the UK.

Facilities and Capacity

Merchant Taylor's Hall's piece de resistance is the Great Hall, the room that dates back to the building's founding. Bathed in natural light, this spectacular hall features cathedral ceilings, ornate details, large windows, and sparkling chandeliers. It can accommodate up to 250 guests for dinner and dancing. If you prefer a more intimate space, The Drawing Room will be at your disposal. Erected in the 18th century, this room is decorated with hand-painted wallpaper that will take you back to a bygone era. The Parlour is also an atmospheric space for your exchange of vows and small receptions. Finally, the courtyard garden is perfect for drinks receptions and post-diner drinks. Complete with a fountain and lots of greenery, this courtyard is the epitome of sophistication.

I hardly know where to start!

Thank you all so very much for such an amazing wedding on Saturday. You all worked tirelessly to make it so special. Everything was truly wonderful and you all did me proud! Both Hugh and I couldn’t have asked for anything more in terms of being so well looked after. Our guests were so impressed and have given us so many compliments on a brilliantly well run event. Thank you all again for playing a brilliant part in our truly wonderful day of which we loved every minute

Superb Customer Care

My brother and I attended the wedding today, as Florist's for the wedding party.
We were treated fantastically well by ALL the staff that we met, nothing was too much trouble and they made our task a COMPLETE pleasure.
If this is how they treat the actual wedding party then you will have a unforgettable time. Many thanks to all the staff for helping us to do our job with ease .

Can we thank you and your team at Merchant Taylor’s Hall for all your hard work in making Caroline and Neil’s recent wedding so very special. You, in particular, were able to deal with every question and request in a really professional manner.

Merchant Taylors’ Hall is part of the rich panoply of history and tradition, which makes this great City. All of our guests, and in particular those from abroad, were totally spell bound by the atmosphere, the food and service.

James was superb in organising the whole operation. To turn the Great Hall from a wedding ceremony hall to a banqueting suite for 110 guests, including flowers, place settings and dance floor in ninety minutes was truly remarkable.

The food and wine was of an amazing standard, we know that Merchant Taylors’ Hall has a reputation for presenting some of the finest dining in the City of London. You certainly surpassed all expectations.

We have many wonderful memories of the 10th September 2016, but it is best summed up by our daughter Caroline, “Can we do it all over again?”.
