The Guildhall Historical Association was founded on 4th May 1944, the creation of five of the City Fathers, long-serving and highly respected members of the City of London’s governing body, the Court of Common Council. Its purpose would be to collect, publish and preserve material of historic interest connected with the City ¬≠particularly aspects of its unique style of government developed over the centuries.

The Association membership is by invitation only and up to now the papers it generated have only been available to membership. This web site is a radical development in its history and we hope you enjoy what we have to share.

All the 2018 meetings of the GHA are on a Monday – 26 March, 18 June and 8 October 2018
