Situated at the top of a short flight of stairs en route to the Stock Room and Great Hall, the Crush Landing is steeped in history. Around the walls are portraits of members of the Company who have served as Lord Mayor of London and a portrait of Luke Hansard, printer to the House of Commons.
A scale model of the Company's last barge is displayed in a showcase on the stairs. This was given to the Company by Victor B. Harrison, Master 1947-8. Many of the City companies owned a barge; they were used in the procession on Lord Mayor's day which was held on the Thames. This ended in 1856 and the Company sold its barge, which was used as a house-boat by one of the Oxford colleges for many years.
The Crush Landing is an ideal location for receiving guests or a small drinks receptions prior to a main event.
We all had a fabulous time, everybody enjoyed every aspect of the venue, the food, the attention from your staff, the garden and the entertainment. It was all amazing and we didn’t have to worry about anything.
What a wise choice we made. There is certainly nothing to fault. You should be very proud of everybody who was part of your team. Please thank them on our behalf.
We would certainly recommend your services to anyone who wants a celebration such as we had.
