Beautiful well kept old building full of history. It won't take long to look round as it's only small but definitely worth going to if you're in the centre of Exeter (it's not always open so do check if you're making a special trip)

Very compact facility, easy to reach. The FREE Redcoat tours opened up its story, which has some amazing twists. Highly recommended.

The Guildhall tour was very interesting. Mr. Ron Crabb, a Mace Sergeant, provided a fascinating tour of the building. A large chandelier hangs from the centre of the roof. It was made by Thomas Pyke of Bridgwater and installed in 1789.

We had our Lions Den at the Guildhall which is similar to Dragons Den where we hear about the good work carried out by all the charitable organisations and by individuals and give them some money for them to provide this service.

Stacked with history, the Guildhall is a lovely place to spend a while. The silver collection and the paintings are worth a look, but I was particularly fascinated with the mediaeval beams in the ceiling. Absolutely gorgeous.

Handy little shopping mall, with main indoor car parking for disabled very close by. You can then walk through the shopping area and out towards Cathedral for a visit there. On the way back you can find cafes offering usual beverages

Exeter Guildhall is a fascinating medieval building with incredible history. It is beautiful inside, with interesting furniture and lovely pictures. The staff are very knowledgeable. The Guildhall can be hired out for private events; we attended a dinner there and it made a truly memorable venue
