Tucked away on the boundary between The City of London and the West End, lies Hatton Garden. The area was originally owned by the Bishopric of Ely.
The area was originally owned by the Bishopric of Ely, at a time when the church was so powerful that bishops kept a palace, a chapel and grounds in central London. In 1576, at the instruction of Elizabeth I, the Bishop of Ely ceded a property to one of the Queen's favourites, Christopher Hatton. Knighted in 1577, Hatton became Lord Chancellor in 1587, and the area subsequently adopted his name.
In the mid-seventeenth century, Hatton's garden was overbuilt with workshops and houses. Medieval London had areas dedicated to specific trades and the quarter around Hatton Garden became the centre for London's jewellery specialists. Four centuries later it still has an international reputation as a world centre for jewellers and fine jewellery.
Today, nearly 300 of the businesses in Hatton Garden are in the jewellery industry and over 50 specialist shops represent the largest cluster of jewellery retailing in the UK. Working in Hatton Garden there are more than 1000 of Britain's finest jewellers, cutters, polishers, gold and silversmiths, gem dealers, craftspeople and designers.
