Got told off by the teacher

After we arrived, it got busy with a school group & a couple of family groups. The staff were friendly & helpful, although they were busy with the large groups, they kept checking in on us, making sure we had seen the exhibits & videos in the different parts of the guildhall.
Great day out

The most unengaging guide I’ve ever seen - we left as soon as people sat down and we could exit without disturbing anyone
