Set in beautiful gardens in the centre of historic York, the Merchant Adventurers' Hall is open for public use as a fully functioning museum, wedding and hospitality venue and meeting place some 650 years after construction began in 1357. There are three main rooms in the Hall: the Great Hall where the Medieval merchants first gathered to conduct business and to socialise. The Undercroft which was used as an alms house to help the sick and the poor and the Chapel offering spiritual care.
The Hall is home to many remarkable collections including silver, furniture and paintings, which provide a glimpse into the rich history of the Hall and the people associated with it. The Hall is open every day during the summer months and is accessible to all from the Fossgate entrance.
If you are thinking of having your special event at the Hall, we are taking bookings for 2013, 2014 and now 2015.
We are seeking volunteers to work in our Admissions team. Do you want to gain new skills or improve on old ones? Are you friendly, enthusiastic and like meeting new people? Then we would love to hear from you!
