We visited the Hall this morning and the interior is beautiful. We were greeted very warmly upon entering and given a guided tour of its history, the stained glass, coats of arms and silver on display. Really enjoyed the visit and would highly recommend it.

The exterior of this Hall is not as exciting as that of the Merchant Adventurers Hall, but it is true to the architecture of the 14th Century when it was built. However the huge internal Hall is a delight with a massive timber beamed ceiling...More
