Worcester Guildhall is one of the city's most splendid and distinctive Georgian buildings.
The ornate façade is decorated with the statues of two kings and a queen, and has a strange figure pinned by his ears over the main doorway.
Inside are the names of the freemen of the city, including Lord Nelson and Sir Winston Churchill.
There are also many historic objects, including a French throne and the city's first fire buckets.
Kings and Cromwell
The ostentatious Guildhall is a throwback to a time when councils weren't afraid to make a really bold statement when putting up a civic building.
Perhaps for this reason the designers set it back from the High Street, allowing the chance for people to take in its rich façade.
The railings that separate it from the street are suitably ornate - with the city's crest in ironwork mirroring the one above the main doorway.
On either side of this doorway are statues of two Kings, Charles I and Charles II, as if to emphasise the Worcester's boastful claim to be ''the faithful city'.
Charles I holds a church in his left hand, while Charles II (who barely escaped with his life after the battle of Worcester) holds an orb.
In between the two kings, at the top of the doorway, is a head pinned up by his ears.
Popularly this is said to be Oliver Cromwell, though if it is, the sculptor had no idea what the Lord Protector of England actually looked like.
It's easier to miss the third monarch on the outside of the Guildhall, as Queen Anne's statue is much higher up the building, above the main doorway.
