As part of London Craft Week, delve into the inner workings of craftsmanship and discover the skills and people behind the UK’s most exquisite jewellery and contemporary silverware on one of our behind-the-scenes guided tours.
At the Goldsmiths’ Centre, a stone’s throw from Hatton Garden’s ancient jewellery quarter, step off the high-street directly into a “beyond luxury” journey-of-discovery and visit an 1872 London Board School transformed into a modern space for aspiring and established goldsmiths.
Gain unique access to this hidden trade by visiting the workshops where young people and apprentices are trained; as well as the creative studios of jewellers, silversmiths and those working in the allied industries practising their craft.
Behind-the-scenes guided tours run on Wednesday 9 May or Friday 11 May 2018 and are allocated on a first booked, first served basis. Unable to attend? Let us know in good time and we will offer your space to our waiting list.
