Guided Tours of Stationers Hall

Tours of Stationers’ Hall 

Stationers' Hall re-opened in July 2022, after having been closed for redevelopment works for 18 months. The purpose of this project was to ensure better accessibility for everyone. Please get in touch with us to find out availability for tours. 

You can also head to our Events page to see what events we are currently planning. Many of our events are open to the public. 

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. Schools are especially welcome.

  • The tours will take place at set times, by prior arrangement
  • Places on these tours MUST be booked in advance.
  • Tours will last for approximately 60 minutes.
  • We ask for a £10 per person donation. This includes tea and coffee at the end of the tour
  • All proceeds will go to the Stationers’ Hall Charity (registered charity number 1169753).
  • Please book your place(s) on tours by email at

Group tours are welcome, subject to availability. Please email if you wish to organise such a tour. 

If you would like the opportunity to visit our Archive Centre and see some original materials,  you can also  organise this alongside the tour of the Hall, (subject to the availability of the archivist). We ask for an additional donation of £5  per person.
