    The Merchant Adventurers' Hall is of major national importance and is scheduled as an ancient monument. It was built between 1357-1361 and is one of the largest buildings of its date in Britain apart from castles, barns and churches. Probably nowhere else in the world can be seen in one building the three rooms serving the three functions of a medieval guild: business and social in the Great Hall, charitable in the Undercroft or Hospital and religious in the Chapel.
