Visit to Lloyds Register of Shipping
Wednesday 27th. January 2016 at 1pm

Lloyd’s Register of Shipping has been part of the City of London for over 230 years. The idea
of a register as a record of a ship’s age, origin and construction was born among the
gossiping underwriters in Edward Lloyd’s Coffee House during the late 17th century. Edward
Lloyd started in premises at Tower Street in 1688. By 1760, the first committee of
underwriters and brokers, called the Register Society, was formed to meet the need for a
more formal source of shipping information.The result was the Register Book of 1764. Today
we visit the Head Office, designed by Thomas Collcutt and finished in 1901, with behind the
new building designed by Graham Stirk of the Richard Rogers Partnership and finished for
the Millenium.
