Next to the Chatedrael, so see Rivhard III tomb. Through the alley ways to the shoppings, so can bribe the kids for some history and culture. And actually the childeren liked the large guildhall space and cells.

The Guildhall is a historical building which is open to the public and also hosts events such as music gigs and plays of which I have seen many and all have been carefully selected and excellent!

Brilliant little building! All authentic. Absolutely love it. Every time I travel to England (from where I live, Australia) I just have to go inside this building and wallow in its history. If you love history, you'll love this building.

A truly beautiful place to visit. The Great Hall was built in 1390 and the surrounding buildings and artefacts are a joy to see. I have seen events there and nothing is too much trouble for the staff. You can visit again and again see things you didn't see before.

Had never heard of the Guildhall before, but what a fascinating well preserved building it is. Had musical entertainment there the day we went, a chap with guitar singing comical historical songs, very good
