The Home of silver in London – A unique shopping experience

Based in the heart of The City of London, beneath Chancery Lane, the London Silver Vaults offers the world’s largest retail selection of fine antique and contemporary silver. A unique underground shopping destination, the Vaults originally opened in 1885 as The Chancery Lane Safe Deposit, but soon became also a secure selling place for London’s silver and jewellery dealers. The present building opened in 1953.

The Vaults boasts 30 specialist shops; each is a treasure trove of beautifully crafted antique and modern silver, and jewellery, dating from the early 1600s to the present day.

Today, it is the home of silver shopping and a true hidden gem; well-loved by international royalty, film stars, and discerning shoppers seeking the world’s finest silver.

All of the vault owners are independent retailers and many are third-generation family businesses, with expert knowledge and a rich history. From silver tableware, cutlery, decorative pieces, and gifts, to fine jewellery and rare collectors’ items: the Vaults sells the widest variety of silver in the world, perfect for every occasion.
