The simple list below of all the halls, gives links, dining capacities, post codes, google maps, and tube/underground guidance - click on the hall name for links to the hiring and contact details of each hall.

Alternatively, go to the Livery Companies Database.

The list is of the livery companies who have their own Hall. Most, but not all, are available for hire. Most, but not all, have their own, or tied, caterers. Also listed are various other "City" venues available for hire.

A note concerning confusion twixt hall names and their livery companies:

Armourers' Hall is the home of the Armourers & Brasiers Company. ie NOT Armourers & Brasiers Hall. Similarly:

Painters' Hall is the home of the Painter-Stainers’ Company, and

Watermen’s Hall is the home of the Watermen & Lightermen's Company.

Conversely, Barber-Surgeons’ Hall is the home of the Barbers’ Company. ie not the Barber-Surgeons’ Company.

The Farmers’ Company and the Fletchers’ Company share and jointly own Farmers & Fletchers Hall.

HQS Wellington is the home of the Master Mariners Company.

The Glaziers’ Company share ownership of their hall with the Launderers’ and Scientific Instrument Makers’ Companies. However, only these two liveries refer to the hall by their own name.

And finally, Chartered Accountants’ Hall is not the hall of the eponymous  livery company (but of its professional institute), though to an extent they do base themselves there or have some of their meetings therein.
