Guildhall (Norwich)

The Guildhall is one of the most splendid buildings in the excellent cathedral city of Norwich.

It stands on one side of the Market Place, itself one of the largest in the country.

Built of knapped flint and stone in 1407, it is believed to be the largest mediaeval city hall outside London.

Beneath the clock, there is a chequerboard pattern of lozenges and triangles.

There was a prison in the undercroft, and the building was still used as the seat of local government as recently as 1938.

Until recently, the city's Tourist Information Centre was housed in the Guildhall, but this has now moved across the Market Place to the Forum.
