Butcher, Baker, Candlestick Maker

850 years of London Livery Company Treasures
I also visited this exhibition last weekend. It is a beautifully presented exhibition, with some truly interesting treasures, not usually on view to the public. It is also special because it is presented in an art gallery rather than a museum and the team at the Guildhall Art Gallery have overcome all manner of technical difficulties to present these fabulous artefacts.  It is a small portion of what was offered, but well worth a visit.  Entrance: £5.00 (+ concessions)

Look out for the Barber Surgeons fold out book of the body - the first of its kind, I believe. 

Cordwainers - 1920's Red Shoes

While you are at the Art Gallery please make the time to visit the Roman Amphitheatre which lies beneath.

I will be off to the Goldsmiths' Hall (details below) again this Saturday, with note book in hand, to do more research.
