The Banqueting Hall
The Banqueting Hall
Built in the 14th century as the communal living space, with both family and their servants eating and sleeping here. The room is fully panelled to provide insulation and to show off the status of the family. The minstrel's gallery above the door was constructed in the 15th century.
