My boys are currently collecting the wheels of time badges so revisited guildhall. We like the fact that the display upstairs in the first building often changes. There's lots to see across the buildings. Staff and friendly and toilets clean!

Visited on a very rainy Good Friday. This is a beautiful building, with wonderful displays showing the evolution of the city. Staff very friendly, and excellent interactive exhibits showing the rich history of the place. Well worth visiting.
