The Gold Drawing Room is beautifully proportioned and richly decorated. It is dominated by magnificent paintings including those of Sir Henry Lee, Champion of Queen Elizabeth I, and his mistress, Anne Vavasour, perhaps the most infamous femme fatale of the period. These last two flank Sir Henry’s third suit of field armour, a masterpiece of the Armourer’s craft and a work of art in its own right.

The room’s enormous windows bathe it in natural light during the day. By night it is illuminated by two astonishing 19th Century chandeliers. It is richly carpeted with a superb copy of the famous Ardebil Persian carpet, now at the Victoria & Albert Museum, which is still in daily use after over 100 years of service.

We love coming to the Armourers Hall for our Annual Chair’s dinner. The venue fits our size of event perfectly – the décor and history that the venue offers is stunning, the service we receive is truly first class and the staff are professional and extremely friendly. We look forward to coming back again next year.
