Saturday 13 October

Originally designed by Richard Castle, the building was rebuilt in the 1760s. However, on two separate occasions, the vaults collapsed and it was eventually replaced by Hugh Darley’s building that we see today. It was severely damaged by a fire and restored by de Blacam and Meagher architects in 1984. The award winning design includes a clever replica of the famous American Bar by Adolf Loos.

Places on this tour will be distributed using a lottery, which has now closed.
