Temporarily closed due to COVID-19
Death, intrigue, scandal and spilt custard…are not compulsory when you visit St. Mary’s Guildhall, but can be discovered in more than 600 years worth of stories from the finest medieval guildhall in the country.
Located in the city’s historic Cathedral Quarter, St. Mary’s Guildhall miraculously survived the Second World War bombing raids, and stands as a monument to the power and wealth of medieval Coventry.
With magnificent interiors, collections of armour, historic furniture, artworks and internationally important tapestries, the Guildhall offers a window into Coventry’s glorious past. A prison to Mary, Queen of Scots, a theatre for Shakespeare and an inspiration to George Eliot, St. Mary’s Guildhall is a fascinating free experience for all ages, at the historic heart of the city of Coventry.
