Patron: The Rt. Hon. The Lord Mayor

The City Livery Club was founded in 1914 and is privileged to count the Rt. Hon. The Lord Mayor as Patron, and HRH The Duke of Edinburgh and HRH The Princess Royal as Honorary Members. The Club offers a private daytime Club for Liverymen and members of related City organisations where they can meet, dine, and exchange views in comfortable premises overlooking the Thames. The Club premises are within easy walk of Bank, Mansion House and Cannon Street stations.

The Club also provides a broad programme of events both formal and informal, with various interests represented by Sections for History & Antiques, Investments, Motoring, Music, Wine, Golf, Aero, Photography, Under 40s and Women in the Livery. The City Face2Face events are informal discussions with City movers and shakers followed by a lunch.

The Club has a number of reciprocal arrangements with other Clubs in the UK and abroad.

On 6 June over 80 Club members and friends were lucky enough to attend Beating Retreat by the Household Division at Horseguards’ Parade.  The evening began with a reception overlooking the river at The Farmers’ Club , giving members an opportunity to visit one of our reciprocal clubs and experience its hospitality for themselves.  This was followed by Beating Retreat, a wonderful spectacle of pageantry, music and military precision drill, given added poignancy by being held on the 75th anniversary of D-Day.  It was a most impressive and memorable evening, and even the weather stayed dry for us.

Other recent events have included a tour of Chelsea Physic Garden and trips to the ballet at Sadler’s Wells, to the Magic Circle and a river cruise at Henley with lunch at Leander.
