Civic Buildings

On the right York Guildhall used by the City Corporation for official business... and the public performance of plays. Built between 1449-53 on land owned by the Guild of St Christopher and St George the building was badly damaged during the Second World War. It was restored to the original plans and reopened in 1960.
To the left the rather Gothic looking council offices built 1888-9. Recent floods have left a tide mark of mud along the base of both buildings.


  1. I can see the mark of the water that covered the entire door, quite an impressive flood. I hope there were no injuries.

  2. Wow you can really see how high the water was!
