Merchant Taylors’ Company

One of the Great Twelve Livery Companies
of the City of London

One of the Great Twelve Livery Companies of the City of London. Livery Companies, or Guilds as they were previously known, began in mediaeval times as fraternities which were often religious but also there to protect the interests of particular trades.

There are now 110 City Livery Companies. Their current activities are mainly charitable although some have retained a trade or industry role. The history of the Merchant Taylors’ Company is an integral part of the history of the City of London.

For more information about Livery Companies of the City of London please see the City Livery website.
