St George’s Hall Now Open Every Day

and now has more exhibition space. The Dickens gallery is downstairs near the cells.

Hall open all hours
St George’s Hall Heritage Centre which has recently received a £23 million refurbishment is now open seven days a week all year round (except Christmas, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day).

Anyone can now call in and view the building and its numerous exhibits for free from 10am till 5pm Monday to Sunday, but we recommend that people allow at least 45 minutes to fully explore and appreciate such a fantastic attraction.

Alan Smith, St George’s Hall manager, said: “We have reviewed all our activities and publicity to try and be as customer friendly as possible.

“People were asking us to stay open seven days a week so they could bring more visitors to see us. Now everyone can come and see this magnificent attraction every day – have a look around and stay for a coffee and a cake!”
