The Merchant Adventurers’ Hall is one of York’s medieval marvels. Set in beautiful gardens, it is open to the public as a museum, wedding and hospitality venue and meeting place some 650 years after construction began in 1357. It is very unusual to be able to see in one building the three rooms serving the three functions of a medieval guild; business and social in the Great Hall, charitable in the Undercroft and religious in the Chapel. The Hall has been in continuous use for the past 650 years.Discover the Hall and its unique collections of art, silver and furniture through a free audio tour and interactive exhibits.
