Discover York's Hidden Medieval Hall.
From the Vicars’ Choral dining hall to Victorian slums and a bakery to a butchers, Bedern Hall’s story stands as an important and intriguing part of York’s history.
The history of Bedern Hall is closely tied to that of York Minster. It was originally part of the College of the Vicars Choral which occupied the area between Goodramgate, St Andrewgate and Aldwark. The hall was the refectory (or dining hall) for the college from the 1390s until the middle of the 17th century when it passed into private hands. The hall, chapel and gatehouse are all that remain of the college.
Since the 14th Century, Bedern Hall has been a place for people to come together. Nestled in the centre of the ancient city of York, The Grade II listed building is full of charming features. From our York stone floor to our soaring beamed roof space, Bedern is a memorable place to visit.
