Tours of Stationers’ Hall and the Church of St Martin-within-Ludgate

Following the huge success of our involvement in Open House London over the past three years, we are delighted to announce that Stationers’ Hall will be open to the public on a more regular basis from the start of 2018.

Members of the public are most welcome to visit our unique and historic Hall and learn more about the work of this ancient City of London Livery Company and its pivotal role in the history of the book trade over the past six centuries. School trips are especially welcome.

  • Access will be through guided tours at set times.
  • Places on these tours MUST be booked in advance and each tour will be limited to 30 people.
  • All tours will start at the church of St Martin-within-Ludgate (40 Ludgate Hill, London EC4M 7DE) and will include the Hall, the garden, the archive and the church (with some variations, depending on our other commitments).
  • Please enter through the main door on Ludgate Hill.
  • Light refreshments of tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided in the church at the end of the tour.
  • Tours will last for approximately 75 minutes.
  • The charge will be £10.00 per person. There will be a discount of £5.00 for anyone under the age of 25.
  • Charges should be paid in cash on arrival.
  • All proceeds will go to the Stationers’ Hall Charity (registered charity number 1169753).
  • Because of the age of the building, disabled access is only available through the use of a stair climber
  • Please book your place(s) on tours by email at admin@stationers.org.

Group tours are welcome, subject to available dates. We will be happy to negotiate a bulk discount, depending on numbers and can accommodate slightly larger numbers for these. In certain cases, we may be able to offer group tours the option of a lunch before or after the tour. Payment for group tours should be made at least one week in advance. Please email admin@stationers.org if you wish to organise such a tour.
