Heritage Open Days 2014: Guildhall Worcester
- 14 September 2014
The City's Guildhall is a truly beautiful building which dates back to 1721. It has a fascinating history – it was once the seat of justice throughout the city and even housed a prison – and today offers both visitors and residents a glimpse of Worcester’s rich and varied heritage.
Along with Queen Charlotte and three of the princesses, he pronounced the Assembly Room - now a function/meeting room - on the top floor of The Guildhall - 'a handsome gallery' and drank a toast to 'prosperity to the city and the Corporation of Worcester'. The portrait of the King - still hanging in the Assembly Room today - was presented by him to the city to commemorate his visit.
On the day there will be opportunity to visit the Mayor's Parlour and cells which are not normally open to the public.
Please refer to the Heritage Open Days website for booking details and timings.
