A reminder that we are closed on bank holidays so will not be open on Monday 25 May for spring bank holiday. But we will resume our reduced counter opening hours at Goldsmiths' Hall of 10am - 1pm from Tuesday 26th May.
We wish you a happy and sunny Bank Holiday weekend!
We are pleased to announce that from today, Monday 18 May, we will be accepting the submission of packets (both at the counter and via the post) for Hallmarking at the Hall, and Heathrow, as part of the partial reopening of both sites.
We know that lack of access to hallmarking has been a significant concern for many of our valued customers. After careful assessment of the advice from Government, including the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS), I am pleased to let you that we will be partially reopening the Assay Office at Goldsmiths’ Hall from Wednesday 13 May for packet collection only.
Are you promoting the benefits of Hallmarking to your customers?
