Explore an atmospheric timber-framed building of national importance.
Visit one of the best preserved timber-framed halls in the country dating back 600 years. Its Great Hall was built c1390 as a meeting place for the Guild of Corpus Christi and was used as a venue for social gatherings, banquets, festivals and as a dwelling place for Chantry priests. Since then, the Guildhall has had a variety of uses - as a courtroom; a theatre (it is rumoured that William Shakespeare even performed here!), for banquets and limited civic events; and as the first home of Leicester's police force.
