The Piece Hall is a fascinating & fun day out for families

At almost 250 years old, The Piece Hall is the last surviving building of its kind anywhere in the UK. Exploring our grand walkways, vast open courtyard and historic rooms will take you on a journey back to Georgian England – a time of mad kings, packhorse trails and family run industry. Take a journey through one of the UK’s most unique buildings, and step in footprints of characters from the past. Any visit to The Piece Hall will be a day full of extraordinary things to see and do.
