Nothing to dislike about this place, has a feeling of warmth and history every time we go. Got married there sept. 2012, fantastic venue, went last week for a Blitz show, excellent again, love to walk around there whenever we are in town

Leicester Guildhall is fantastic and situated next to the Cathedral where King Richard 111 will be re-interred next year. The visitor centre is well worth a visit.

Went to a concert there, very nice 600 year old Grade 1 listed building with a nice atmosphere. Lovely courtyard too. Nothing much more to say except it is open everyday and worth a visit if you are staying in Leicester.

This place was really interesting , children had fun reading up information about the past. Walking around together feels great knowing you are having family time.

Really enjoyed the visiting centre. I found myself getting very excited and couldn't wait to read the next bit of information about the battle. I think the excitement was created by the surroundings and sounds. The only thing I would change is the price! I would visit once, but not again with friends or take my friends children. If it...

I was surprised with whats on show here, it has a lot more to offer than what I was expecting from a visit to a Guildhall, well worth visiting when in Leicester.

Popped in while doing some geocaching. Amazing buildings, staff very helpful and had lots if information about king Richard . Shame we couldn't get the truth out of who was visiting the cathedral. We thought it was prince William, as the security was huge. Think it was the Dyke of Gloucester though.

In common with many other cities Leicester replaced much of its history with concrete in the '60s and sadly much later. Well worth a visit, even for non-specialists; don't miss the old library (upstairs) and the old police cells. Very handy toilets,too. The Guildhall lend itself very well to concerts and other performances - please don't be put off by... More

Free, exhibition. Takes about an hour in all seeing everything, interesting though. Believe it looks out onto the car park site where King Richard's body was discovered - there was lots of road and construction work going on around it!

I have been here several times now and I am always amazed! There is a lovely clock in the courtyard, which after chatting to staff found out was a reproduction of one that is housed in a nearby church, that I have yet to visit. The staff are really helpful and even rang me to tell me when a book... More
