Couch & Hoskin

Billingsgate old market

You will find this firm of tailors at 40 Eastcheap on the corner of Idol Lane. Thousands of City workers, visitors and local residents walk past it daily.

Sometimes you can see the tailors working on their cutting bench as you look at items in the window.

The firm began in 1908 at which time it was located in Cullum Street.

Several generations of the same family have been running the firm since the second world war.
