Blackfriars

Founded in the 13th century, Blackfriars is one of the most complete Dominican friaries surviving in England. After the Dissolution of the Monasteries the building became a meeting place for craft guilds.The former Chapter House contains an exhibition that follows the history of Blackfriars through its three phases - as a medieval friary, its occupation by the guilds and its 20th century restoration. Blackfriars now houses several craft workshops.
