The Guildhall complex has different 'wings'. The West Wing is the building with the bookshop, clockmakers museum and Guildhall Library. That wing was opened 1974? The North Wing (recently refurbished) is the Giles Gilbert Scott designed one? (talk) 21:22, 20 May 2008 (UTC)

1766 image[edit]

Hi, page 58 of this book shows an older illustration of the hall than that currently in the article. If you'd like help lifting it and cleaning it up for this article, drop me a line on my talk page. Parrot of Doom (talk) 19:06, 8 April 2009 (UTC)

Roman circus[edit]

Am I correct that the remains of the Roman town's circus (which the article calls an "amphitheatre") were discovered and excavated at least partly under the plaza in front of the Guildhall? I believe an inlaid concrete band forms a large curve across the plaza pavement, following the outline of the circus. This might be worth noting (assuming I have it right), since it's visible to the public. --Michael K SmithTalk 22:36, 24 December 2011 (UTC)
