Occupying the same site since 1555, the College of Arms was entirely rebuilt in the 1670's following the Great Fire of London and has undergone later alterations.
We will be guided by Chester Herald and Timothy Duke, viewing the records and collections of this ancient organisation, as well as the extensive library of genealogical and heraldic works, together with unique manuscript collections dating from the 14th century.
Learn about the ceremonies and duties of the English Heralds from the medieval period to the present day.
