Reviewed November 6, 2012

Leicesters Guildhall is situated next to Leicester Catherdral. One time Jail it is a delightful place to visit and has been preserved very well.

“A hidden gem and free to enter”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Discovered this location when watching "Most Haunted" the day before I visitied Leicester...spooky in itself.

I only had limited time to wander around, but found it a very atmospheric building, especially down in the cells.

Did I mention that it was free?

“Very old”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

Came across the Guildhall by accident as we were looking round Leicester.
Very old building and interesting to look round.
The staff on the counter were very friendly and knowledgeable.

“Well-kept and interesting attraction”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

I visited in September, staff were very friendly and attentive without being intrusive.

The area to view is small but interesting if you like Leicester and wish to know more.

I would say that an hour or two would be plenty of time to see everything if you were reading all of the information and taking your time.
