About Skinners Hall

8 1/2 Dowgate Hill, London
East Central London, EC4R 2SP

Nestled away as one of East Central London’s greatest hidden gems, Skinners’ Hall is the home of The Worshipful Company of Skinners, one of the City of London’s Great 12 Livery Companies. A beautiful Grade I listed building, dating back as early as 1670, Skinners’ Hall is a wonderful space in which to spend a truly unforgettable day.

The Hall itself, having been rebuilt after the Fire of London, remains to this day a historical site of significant interest boasting gorgeous period features that make it a magical venue for your wedding day.

On the day itself, you and your guests will enter through the grand ceremonial entrance gates, through their stunning courtyard and into the Outer Hall. Bedecked with warm wooden features and a beautiful double height ceiling, it is a resplendent space in which to say ‘I do’ to that special someone. 

Once you’ve exchanged vows – and captured some unforgettable wedding photos – you and your guests take your seats to dine in the large and spacious Great Hall, or if the weather allows you could even host a relaxed BBQ meal on the Rooftop Garden. Finally, you can celebrate what is sure to be an unforgettable day in their intimate Old Court Room for your first dance!

First Impressions Matter!
Venue Service

By Mother of the Groom, on 04 Oct 2018Date of Wedding - 07 Jul 2018

Everything was terrific on Saturday and all the guests loved the venue – even though it was a trifle hot!!! The food was really, really good and waiting staff very attentive and pleasant. My husband and kids thought the chocolate mousse was to die for and I do remember Kevin almost salivating when he tasted it back in April. The cheese wedding cake was very nicely presented. The guests who went upstairs for the ceremony told me they thought they had the best seats in the house! The staff on duty when people arrived were most helpful which I believe is very important as first impressions matter. All in all it was a lovely wedding in a fabulous venue which I knew it would be from the moment I first came with Kevin to look at Skinners Hall. I am sure all the photos will be amazing as the photographer knew Skinners Hall very well.

Thank You!

We had a lovely day,thank you! The weather was fine and sunny so the bridal couple left the church with us all throwing confetti and feeling very happy after a wonderful church ceremony. The picture is taken straight after and they are so happy! At the reception the terrace was beautifully presented by yourselves so again we all enjoyed the sunshine with your crudites and guests mingled happily.Following this the Wedding breakfast was delicious and many of our family and friends were full of compliments, so thank you to all your staff for giving David and Michaela and my family such a wonderful day to remember. Kind regards, Alison and Ivor
