Barber’ Hall was rebuilt after it was destroyed after WW II 30' E of its original site, which has been the subject of an archaeological find:

Barber Surgeons’ Hall Gardens, London Wall, EC2 (BSG97)
TQ 3228 8114

Barber Surgeons’ Hall Gardens, London Wall, EC2 TQ 3228 8114 MoLAS (W McCann) ground penetrating radar survey Mar 1997 Barber Surgeons BSG97

A survey has identified sub-surface anomalous areas which could be consistent with the survival of some remains from the 17th-c Anatomy Theatre designed by Inigo Jones [the sole part of the Hall to survive the Fire of 1666]. Additional anomalous areas may be associated with other structures, particularly that of the City wall at the W edge of the area.

In the court-room is one of the most remarkable of Holbein's works in this country — Henry VIII. giving the Charter to the Company, 1541. It is painted on vertical oak panels; is about 6 feet by 10 feet 3 inches, and contains nineteen figures the size of life, the King, however, being much above the rest in stature.
---London, Past and Present. H.B. Wheatley, 1891.
