When we went to the Guildhall at the weekend we walked through some very interesting areas. We were walking down a road called London Wall, heading towards our destination, when we turned the corner we came across this building below. It just looks so out of place! It looks like an American Colonial house, slap bang in the centre of the City of London. Its is completely dwarfed by all the huge buildings surrounding it. The grass in front is so lush, its an oasis in a concrete jungle.
The building is known as the Girdlers Hall, and although this is a fairly modern building there has been a hall in the site since 1431, initially set up to support craftsmen who made girdles. (not what you might be thinking, originally girdle was another name for a belt.) The building is beautiful!
A view of the Guildhall, we went into the door towards the right of the photo, but the reception was held in the building on the left.
