Since 1762, the name Hill has represented a combination of craftsmanship and the highest standards of expertise that the firm continues to offer, with a long and distinguished history of instrument and bow making.

The owners and directors of W. E. Hill & Sons – Simon Morris, Steven Smith, Stefan-Peter Greiner, Derek Wilson, and Robert Brewer Young – have broad experience in expertise, appraisal, violin and bow making, restoration, and conservation.

The year 2018 marked the return of W. E. Hill & Sons to London. The new workshop is located in the historic coach house and stables of Burgh House in Hampstead, London, which dates back to 1704.
