St. Mary's Guildhall is one of the finest surviving medieval guildhalls in England, an unexpected treasure in the narrow, winding lanes of Coventry's historic 'Cathedral Quarter', and an oasis of historic charm and tranquillity in the bustling city.

First built in the 1340s for the merchant guild of St. Mary, it was enlarged between 1394 and 1414 and extensively embellished at the end of the fifteenth century. Soon after it was built, it was also adopted as the headquarters for the mayor and city leaders, and the corporation of Coventry remained here until the early twentieth century, when Coventry's present Council House was built. Join Mary, Queen of Scots, and Shakespeare on the long list of visitors to have passed through our doors.

"Fantastic, so much of interest. What a wonderful surprise"

"Utterly breathtaking"

"What a wonderful experience"

"What a wonderful building - I had expected to see just one room, however, it turned into a magical visit with room after room showing so much of our history"
