Details

Leicester's Guildhall is one of the finest surviving timber framed medieval halls in England and a premier venue in the city for more than 600 years.

In the heart of the Old Town, this Grade 1 Listed building retains much of its traditional architectural splendour, with original period features and detailing. All facilities are accessed via the lovely cobbled courtyard.

The Great Hall and Mayor's Parlour with their majestic oak panelling will certainly impress your guests. The upstairs library can be used for drink receptions and the Jury Room for meetings.

The whole venue may be hired and private tours of the Guildhall, its cells and Medieval Leicester museum are available.

The ground floor is fully accessible, but the first floor can only be reached by stairs. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.
