Lloyds Coffee House

Building  From 1691  To 1785

Edward Lloyd first opened his coffee house on Tower Street in 1687 but had to move to larger premises in Lombard Street in 1691. It was a meeting place for businessmen where information was exchanged. In 1696 Lloyd started publishing Lloyds Lists of ship arrivals and departures and so began what is now the world's leading insurance market providing specialist insurance.
