An amazing old building with lots of history. It served as the administrative centre, court and prison for centuries, and the prison cells alone are worth visiting for. There are interesting stories to read of those held here who were transported to Australia, and a...More

Chaps of all ages are fully into this lovely preservation of the era of the Black Death, civic representation and municipal recognition. The record of Mayors, the seating for different sized worthies and the two adjacent and "manned" cells (eye popping for small boys) are...More
