The Armourers & Brasiers' Company is a Livery Company of the City of London. It was founded in 1322 as the Guild of St George of the Armourers, it was awarded its first Royal Charter in 1453 from King Henry VI. In 1708 the Armourers joined with the Brasiers and the Worshipful Company of Armourers & Brasiers received its current charter from Queen Anne. Since the 19th Century, the main focus of the Company has been its charitable giving.
The Company has occupied its current site since 1346. The present Armourers' Hall was built in 1839 and re-modelled in 1872. It is a Grade 2* listed building and a scheduled ancient monument.
