Overview
More
The Merchant Taylors' Hall provides a magnificent venue for special occasions like banquets, weddings and concerts as well as providing excellent facilities for meetings, exhibitions and conferences. The Hall, built six centuries ago within the medieval city wall, accommodates up to 150 guests and is one of the most remarkable memorials to the City of York's medieval past. The Hall is home to the Company Of Merchant Taylors, one of seven guilds in the City whose origin dates back to the 13th Century and one of only three that have existed without a break since medieval times. Ordinances and a members' register are in the City archives of 1387.

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.
