The tour will include:

  • Talk on the history of the Assay Office and the building. Also images of the new Assay Office.
  • Tour of the private Silver Collection and the surrounding rooms on the main staircase, which include the Library, Wardens Sitting Room and Dining Room and the original lavatory.
  • A glimpse inside the Hallmarking floor.

Over sixty people entered the raffle, how amazing!  We look forward to welcoming the 20 lucky participants on Tuesday 2nd June.
