Fodor's Review

Built between 1357 and 1361 by a wealthy medieval guild, this is the largest half-timbered hall in York. It has fine collections of silver and furniture, along with paintings that provide insight into the history of the Hall and its founders. The building itself is much of the attraction. A riverfront garden lies behind the hall.
