The four Livery Halls in the heart of London will be opened during lunch time hours, where guests are advised to bring a packed lunch and explore the grounds.

Each of the venues are to be opened between 12pm and 2pm including Saddlers’ Hall in Gutter Lane on 7, 12 and 14 June, and Skinners’ Hall in Dowgate Hill on 7 and 12 June.

Apothecaries’ Hall in Black Friars Lane, and Barbar-Surgeons’ Hall in Wood Street, will both open their doors on 14 June.

"We wanted to bring in local professionals because it’s a nice way of spending a lunch time and for them to see what’s on their doorstep," said Joanna Allen, marketing manager at Party Ingredients. "They are also great venues for corporate events and meetings."

Despite being an open invitation, all visitors are asked to contact Party Ingredients prior to their visit.
