The Piece Hall
Bell Ringing Breakfast
Step back in time and experience the iconic history of The Piece Hall. This impressive building, the UKs only remaining Georgian cloth hall, was in a different league to other cloth halls, attracting manufacturers and merchants from all over Europe. Its weekly market was ideal for serving the needs of small-scale woollen clothiers, and when The Piece Hall opened in 1779, the bell was rung at 10am on a Saturday morning to mark the start of trade for merchants and buyers. You can now relive this tradition of the past.
Upon arrival at The Piece Hall you will be greeted at the Visitor Centre before heading to The Map Room where you will ring the bell at 10am to mark the start of the trading day, before being presented with a certificate and a Piece Hall guide book.
After working up an appetitie from bell ringing you will enjoy a delicious ‘Blondin’s belly busting breakfast at Blondin’s Diner.
After bell ringing you are welcome to explore the Piece Hall at leisure.
