The tour will be led by VocalEyes Describer Tony McBride with Timandra Nichols, Salters’ Hall tour guide.
Salters’ Hall, a Grade II listed Brutalist building, has recently reopened following extensive renovation by De Metz Forbes Knight Architects in 2016. Designed by Sir Basil Spence in the 1970s with interiors by David Hicks, this building is home to the Salters’ Company, one of the Great Twelve Livery Companies. Come and explore the Salters’ Company historic archive as well as their fine silver collections through an audio-described tour of this stunning building.
The tour of Salters’ will take you on a journey through the Salters’ Hall from the glazed wooden pavilion entrance into the archive in the basement. Then out into the garden before taking the cantilever staircase up to the double-height Livery Hall, which is fully lined in a fluted or reeded ash panelling, with corner windows, and a gallery. There will also be an opportunity to visit the Ladies’ Dining Room, with a gallery that overlooks the livery hall and an opportunity to gain a bird’s eye view of the garden and the surrounding cityscape including the old London Wall from a glass balcony.
