The Merchant Adventurers Hall is one of York's medieval marvels

The Merchant Adventurers’ Hall, a unique building in the heart of historic York. This stunning timber framed building was constructed by a fraternity made up of York citizens to provide a base for charity, worship and business in the centre of the city on the banks of the River Foss. Today, as well as being a fascinating museum it is also a scheduled ancient monument and Grade 1 listed building. Fascinating tales, awe-inspiring architecture and intriguing, rare artefacts…explore this stunning timber framed building. The Hall also remains the everyday base for the 160 members of the Company of Merchant Adventurers of the City of York. A Merchant Adventurer was someone who risked or ‘adventured’ his or her own money in overseas trade bringing back goods and wealth to York.
