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.

We were recommended to visit this by the tourist office, and it is certainly worth a visit, especially upstairs where there are many fine portraits as well as a beautiful ceiling.

Free entry to an impressive building with history. Sometimes a meeting etc can stop all of the building being accessed. Worth a look,

This attractive building is well-maintained and has a bit of history on the façade. The head above the doorway is that of Oliver Cromwell, who was beheaded for his traitorous activities against the crown. The heads in the façade are similarly of other opposition figures...More

Guild hall. Is a beautiful building right in the centre of Worcester, they have regular fairs on the ground floor, job, craft etc it is easily accessible to disabled and able bodied alike. Well worth a visit. And it's free.

Great for a quick 15 min dander around. Loved the relaxed atmosphere so well done Worcester. Does every Mayor get a massive oil painting I wonder?
