Welcome to The Shipwrights

What we do

The original purpose of the Company 700 years ago was to safeguard the quality of shipbuilding in London. This continues today with the presentation of annual awards of excellence.
The Company donates annually to maritime related individuals and companies.
Liverymen dine 4 times a year and attend social events and informal gatherings.  Liverymen vote in the annual elections of the Lord Mayor and Sheriffs.
