London's Most Opulent Buildings To give you an idea of just how grand Drapers Hall is, it’s had the honour of doubling as Buckingham Palace in feature films. The site was once inhabited by Thomas Cromwell, and in 1543 it was purchased by the Drapers Company - one of the City’s livery companies -to be used astheir meeting place. No expense was spared with the furnishings, as rooms contain silk woven tapestries and crystal chandeliers as well as a fine collection of silverware. The main hall’s 28 marble columns prop up portraits of aristocrats who peer suspiciously at visitors.
