Group visits at Bedern Hall
Bedern Hall is a welcoming medieval refectory in the heart of York. It was formerly the home of The Vicars Choral of York Minster, and now is a Guildhall for 3 of York’s ancient Guilds as well as a splendid venue for meetings, weddings and dining. Our central location makes us ideal as a base from which to tour the City.

Learn about the Vicars’ lifestyle and the things they left behind.
