Ornate and rare large medieval guildhall

Originally built as a guildhall for a prosperous wool trade, St George's has been used under many guises a corn exchange, a weapons store and finally, a theatre.

St George's guildhall now proudly stands as the largest surviving medieval guildhall in England - boasting many original and rare medieval features. Its Great Hall measures 101 feet long by 29 feet wide.

In 1442, the first theatre production was hosted at St George's. Today, a theatre and arthouse cinema permanently reside at the guildhall.
