Situated in the City of London, the Guildhall is a focal building with an important function, as it is the administrative centre for the City of London Government. It has been used as a town hall for a number of centuries and enjoys a long and rich history. A truly impressive building, which looks stunning and boasts fabulous, intricate details, the Guildhall has hosted many important trials in its time, such as the trials of Lady Jane Grey, Guildford Dudley, and Anne Askew. It is the only stone building that did not belong to the Church to survive the 1666 Great Fire of London. It is also where you will find important memorials to historical figures such as Admiral Lord Nelson, Winston Churchill, Pitt the Elder and Pitt the Younger.
Renting serviced offices in this area puts businesses in a very central location with excellent transport facilities and many amenities and facilities near to hand. The Guildhall itself is a complex that houses a number of attractions, such as the Clockmaker’s Museum and Guildhall Library. There are also modern office spaces just to the north of the building where the day to day administration takes place.
