St. Mary's Guildhall

The Great Hall, St. Mary's Guildhall

St. Mary's Guildhall warmly welcomes schools and adult learning groups to visit and enjoy this historic treasure at the heart of the city. 

The Guildhall is free to visit for groups, and is conveniently located next to Coventry Cathedral and the Herbert Art Gallery, making it easy to combine a trip to other attractions in the area on the same excursion. Introductory talks and tours can be provided by prior arrangement.

With curriculum links to many subject areas including arts, history and music, St. Mary's Guildhall is a fantastic educational resource on your doorstep. 

Resources for download

  • A Teacher's Information Pack which includes background history and suggested topics for study
  • A hazard information sheet for safety awareness (please note that this does not replace any risk assessment that schools and other groups may be required to undertake in preparation for their visit).
  • A fun Discovery Trail takes children around the Guildhall cracking clues in pursuit of the missing sword (whilst learning facts along the way).
