A Guided Visit to the Armourers and Brasiers’ Livery Hall
Tuesday 16th January
Doors to the venue will open at 10.15am. Tour will start at 10.30am.
The Armourers and Brasiers is one of the 110 Livery Companies in the City of London. In 1322, in the reign of King Edward II, the Guild of St George of the Armourers was instituted, by ordinance of the City of London, which laid down regulations for the control of the trade. King Henry VI presented the Armourers with their first Royal Charter in May 1453. The Company’s present Charter was granted in 1708 by Queen Anne, giving the Brasiers (workers in brass and copper), who had become involved with the Company as early as the 16th century, equal status with the Armourers. As the Armourers to the Services, the Company played a special role in the defence of the City. Its connections with the Armed Forces persist to this day, particularly through the award of prizes for excellence to young service personnel. It also has long traditions of charity and hospitality.
Coffee/Tea and biscuits will be served and include in the tour price. The tour will last 90 minutes.
Wimbledon Society Members £22. Non-Members £25

A Guided Visit to the The Household Cavalry Museum and Changing of the Guard
Wednesday 28th February at 10.45am
The Household Cavalry Museum sits within Horse Guards in Whitehall. The Household
Cavalry was formed in 1661 under the direct order of King Charles II and now consists of
the two senior regiments of the British Army, The Life Guards and the Blues and Royals.
The Museum is a living museum about real people doing a real job in a real place.
Through a large, glazed partition you can see troopers working with horses in the original
18th century stables. The experience comes alive with compelling personal stories, firsthand
accounts of the troopers’ rigorous and demanding training. First, we will watch the
changing of the Guard outside the museum on Whitehall, followed by the guided tour of
Wimbledon Society Members £14. Non-Members £16. Places are limited.
To book a place contact email@example.com or on 07817 419431
