Description

The City of London Freeman's Guide is a vital companion to the Freedom of the City of London as it is in modern times. Each year circa 1,800 people are admitted to the Freedom of the City of London, about half of them coming by way of one of the City's 110 Livery Companies. Contrary to widely held belief the Freedom of the City of London and the Livery Companies remain vital, relevant and active aspects of the City, upholding its traditions and reputation as a global centre of excellence and innovation for so many aspects of commercial and civic life. 

This guide is a concise almanac to the customs, ceremonies, traditions, institutions and offices of the City of London and its diverse Livery Companies as they are today. The guide signposts such annual events at The Lord Mayor's Show, The Trial of the Pyx, The Lion Sermon and the Ceremony of the Quit Rents. It also explores the modern role of the various trades, crafts and professions represented by the Livery Companies. The guide highlights the activities of the Livery Companies in charity, education, industry and fellowship, and their links to the Armed Forces, Royal Family and other institutions. 

Whether you are a prospective Freeman, a long standing member of a Livery Company or simply interested in the living history of the City, this guide will be your constant companion in a life-long journey of exploration and discovery in the great and famous City of London.
