Guildhall Museum

The former Guildhall (nos. 5 & 6 Greenmarket) is one of the oldest buildings in Carlisle. The timber-framed building was constructed between 1396 and 1407 for Richard de Redness, and formerly known as Redness Hall. Later the building was used as the Guildhall for Carlisle. The building was renovated in 1978, but much of the early timber-work survives, as do wattle-and-daub internal walls. Today, the building hosts a restaurant and the floors above are the Guildhall Museum, which was opended in 1978. The building is Grade I listed on the National Heritage List for England.
