Following a successful Heritage Lottery Funded project we now have a Public Programme of tours, workshops and events for schools, families and adults.
Our programme explores the history and heritage of The Salters’ Company and encourages engagement in science, history and architecture.
We use our historic archive, fine and decorative arts collection, Grade II listed building and our garden which includes a section of London Wall, to support these exciting new sessions.

Group Tours at Salters' Hall
We are now taking bookings for group tours of Salters’ Hall, which has been re-opened following an impressive refurbishment! The home of the Salters’ Company since 1976, no other Livery Hall looks quite like it. It is an excellent example of Brutalist architecture, designed by Sir Basil Spence and David Hicks. A tour of the Hall will include an opportunity to see the unique Main Hall on the 5th floor, as well as a brand new pavilion entrance and Salters’ exhibition and archive.
Tours are available Tuesdays to Thursdays and can accommodate up to 20 people. Tours last between 40 minutes to an hour and are suitable for history societies, U3A and WI groups, and London interest groups. A tour of Salters’ Hall is an excellent way of exploring the history of the City of London and the history of salt through the unique lens of a Livery Company.
