About

A privileged opportunity to explore this stunning timber framed building - the inspirational home to The Company of Merchant Adventurers of the City of York.

Explore the Merchant Adventurers’ Hall and delve into York’s entrepreneurial past, present and future following stories of the “mystery of mercers” - business pioneers who made it happen: from the medieval wool trade, via the railways, chocolate and two universities to the 21st century Science City.

Also enjoy a locally roasted coffee, freshly baked sumptuous cakes & snacks or a light lunch in our Merchants’ Coffee House.

 

We are delighted to reopen the Hall for general admissions from Tuesday 8th September.  Please note that face coverings will be required inside the Hall in accordance with Government guidelines.
