About

Leicester is privileged to have one of the best-preserved timber framed halls in the country dating back 600 years.

Leicester Guildhall is a historic building and the oldest building still in use in the city.

The Great Hall was built in about 1390 as a meeting place for the Guild of Corpus Christi.

It is believed that Shakespeare performed here during Tudor times.
Over the years it has had many uses, including housing one of the oldest public libraries and serving as the Town Hall.

After restoration, the Guildhall was opened to the public as a museum in 1926.
