Attended a networking event here. The building a just wonderful and oozes history. We were in the great hall with large vaulted ceilings. Great place to hire for an event.

I really need to provide a recommendation for Leicester City as a whole. There are lots of little venues to visit as part of a day out or a weekend visit. This is one of them. Situated near the cathedral and Richard III centre this is an interesting building that was used as a town hall and a courthouse with... More

A lovely building that seems to be just open. It would be a lot better visit if they had a guide to explain in more detail. I would recommend it for a rainy day but still please go.

This building in the heart of the old Roman centre of the city is well worth a visit. It is open Mon-Sat and has been preserved sympathetically. The children might be startled when you lift them up to see into old jail cells and they see the dummy prisoner inside. I was when I was shown it many years ago.... More

We were fortunate enough to be at the Guildhall at the time of a small performance so had a Little time to enjoy this Building whose oldest parts date back to the 14th Century. Quite different to the modern city surrounding it but well worth the time you spend there.

It's right next to the Leicester Cathedral (also King Richard III is buried here) and also not far from the King Richard III Visitor Centre itself. In a brilliant location where after going Guildhall you can go to other places while you're in the area. Brilliant for history lovers and tourists. The history in this place is interesting, has a...
