This beautiful little fourteenth century building, hidden behind Goodramgate, has a fascinating history. It was built for the Vicars Choral, who sang in the Minster. After the Reformation, it had many different uses, and was in the possession of a firm of Pork Butchers when, in the mid 1970’s, York City Council decided to redevelop the area. All the surrounding buildings, apart from the Hall and neighbouring Chapel, were demolished, and the hall underwent major restoration, which returned it as close as possible to its original state.

The hall now opens for visitors, and has a café serving a range of cakes and savouries. It caters for events, including weddings, and is home to three of York guilds – The Gild of Freemen of the City of York, The York Guild of Building, and the Company of Cordwainers.

Our visit. We will have a short talk about the history of the building, an opportunity to look round, and a cup of tea or coffee with a slice of cake

Finding the hall Bedern Hall is, indeed a ‘hidden gem’. It is situated on Bartle Garth, in central York. Bartle Garth can be accessed from King’s Square via St Andrewgate, or from Goodramgate via an archway on the corner of Deangate and Goodramgate. Full details and map can be found on the Bedern Hall website http://www.bedernhall.co.uk/visit-bedern-hall-in-york/ I would strongly advise checking this out if you haven’t visited the hall before. I can send the information by post to anyone who does not have computer access.

Parking See the above website which recommends Foss Bank car park – an easy 10-minute walk away
