The City's Guildhall dates back to 1721. At one time it was the seat of justice for the city and housed a prison. It was visited in 1788 by King George III who declared it 'a handsome gallery' and presented the city with his portrait to commemorate his visit which can be seen in the Assembly Room. Described by Pevsner as a 'a splendid town hall, as splendid as any of C18 England' it gives visitors an insight into Worcester's rich and varied heritage.

The Old Palace was the official residence of the Bishop of Worcester until 1842. The building was sold in 1846 to the Dean and Chapter and used as the Deanery. Later it became a Church House club and Diocesan Offices.
Along with the Cathedral, it is the oldest building in Worcester, indeed there was a bishop living here before there was a King of England. The Old Palace also has many royal associations including Queen Elizabeth I who kept her Court at the Bishop's Palace in Worcester for seven days in 1575. King Charles I stayed briefly in 1644 and James II stayed at the Palace in 1687.
