We were in the Guild Chapel twice - once on our own once as part of a guided tour. The place is small, beautiful and quiet. A nice respite for the mind and feet.

A pity that the wall paintings have ,for the most part, been lost. Reproductions of them are illustrated and the history of the building is clearly shown.

Beautiful chapel with the gorgeous remains of medieval wall paintings - pop in, sit and contemplate the history around you and it’s welcome calm away from the main tourist drag.

Lovely to walk in and not pay. Took a break from the rain and enjoyed this chapel. If chapels are your thing then do stop... at least you won’t have to pay like everywhere else in town
