Hoopers - Putting Down New Roots

After 25 years in the Clerkenwell area, Hoopers is relocating to Shad Thames in London SE1.

Central London has always been our home, with our previous offices located in close proximity to the public search rooms which were once vital to our work.

With the search rooms long since closed following the advent of digitised records, and our centenary fast approaching, we felt it was time to find a new home in a vibrant, colourful part of London which is nevertheless steeped in history.

We look forward to welcoming you to our new office soon!
