Attraction details
Reviewed April 25, 2013

I have only ever visited the guildhall in the past as a wedding guest, and had thought what a wonderful and historic venue with gorgeous features and a romantic feel.
Recently I visited with elderly relatives the Richard III exhibition adn was very pleased with the experience.
The exhibition itself is compact enough for everyobody to walk around comfortably without too much standing - and listening and interaction. I would visit again to see how the exhibition evolves and also to see other things which are showing at this venue
The exhibition is also Free so donate genrously as you enter.........
RIP Dickie!

A beautifully preserved building with a smart modern extension which does not destract from the ancient. The small but beautifully formed exhibition about the discovery of Richard III's remains is fascinating, it will not entirely quench your thirst for knowledge, but I see that as a good thing. There are plenty of articles out there and no doubt there will be books to come. We also did the Walking Trail which is wonderful introduction to Lelciester. Also it guides you to the famous 'car park' with its marquee covering the spot, photograph essential! We also visited the cathedral. We came up to visit the University which will be home to my son for a few years hopefully, so looking forward to many more visits to this historic and pleasant city. Also have a photograph of the Archaeology Department on campus - hope to get in there one day too!

I went to a friends wedding at the guildhall and it was the perfect setting for the day. Although it was cold outside on the day, it was warm and cosy inside. There are some nice places to have photos taken which includes some of the main traditional features of the building. The staff were very helpful and friendly on the day.
