This medieval marvel, set in beautiful gardens in the heart of the city, was built 1357-61, and is one of the largest buildings of its kind and date in Britain.

Unusually, all the functions of a medieval guild were practised here: business and social in the Great Hall, charitable in the undercroft and religious in the chapel. The collection includes portraits of past Company Governors, rare oak furniture and early silverware. Enjoy a free audio tour and interactive exhibits.
