What To Expect

History at its finest!

In 1632, the town’s public library moved to the east wing of the Guildhall. One extinguished item that remains at the Library includes the New Testament in Greek from the 15th century. It is also reputed that William Shakespeare appeared here in the late 16th century.

Over the years, the Guildhall has had many uses. Between 1876 and the 1900s, It was Leicester’s first police station, with many criminals passing through the doors and sentences passed for the petty crimes.

Other uses for this magnificent building included it being used as a school, however, the building was becoming extremely run down and dilapidated, and by the 1920s, there was talk of demolishing the building. Purchased by Leicester City Council, it reopened its doors as a public museum in 1926.

Ghost of Leicester Guildhall.

Classed as Leicester’s most haunted building. Resident ghosts include the mysterious white lady who makes her presence felt in the library. However, many believe it’s not a lady but a monk. Let’s remember that there used to be the Old Grey Friars monastery only 300 yards from the Guildhall, so maybe there may be some truth in the sighting being that of a monk!

Who still haunts the impressive hall

There is so much history to the Guildhall. There is no question that it’s haunted, but that’s what the public has been saying since it opened its doors as a museum.
