St Mary's Guildhall

Coventry's St Mary's Guildhall, one of the finest surviving medieval guildhalls in England, was built in the 1340s for the merchant guild of St Mary. It became the headquarters for the mayor and corporation of Coventry until the early 1900s.

Interesting rooms include the Old Council Chamber, used as the meeting place for the City Council from 1421 to the 1860s, and the Prince's Chamber, originally a buttery or pantry, which derives its name from the 14th-century Black Prince's association with Coventry. At the top of the building is Caesar's Tower, believed to be the place where the Scottish Queen was imprisoned in 1569.

The building still occupies a central role in the civic calendar and continues to be used for civic banquets and other ceremonies and occasionally for concerts and other entertainment.
