Worshipful Company of Innholders

The Worshipful Company of Innholders is one of the Livery Companies of the City of London. The Innholders were originally known as Hostellers, but their name had changed by the time it was incorporated under a Royal Charter in 1514. The Company has, over the years, lost its status as an association of traders and businessmen, instead becoming, as have most other Livery Companies, an establishment dedicated primarily to charity.

The Innholders' Company ranks thirty-second in the order of precedence of Livery Companies. Its motto is Hinc Spes Affulget, Latin for Hence Hope Shines Forth.
