Bury St Edmunds Guildhall


Venue information

Open Wednesday and Sunday 11am to 4pm

Bury St Edmunds Guildhall has recently had a re-development to offer visitors a 'travel through time' experience. The Guildhall will now be able to host activities, events, workshops, exhibitions and and is licensed for wedding ceremonies.

The earliest reference to The Guildhall is in 1279 and the street upon which it was built has been known as Guildhall Street since the 1290s. The building has a fascinating history to explore during your visit – The Guildhall was once used to imprison monks, and was also used as an assembly house, court room, library and second home to the Theatre Royal as a rehearsal space.

Today The Guildhall is a tourist attraction and heritage centre. The building also offers school visits and hire for weddings and events.

On the days The Guildhall is open, the Pear Tree Café is also open there for drinks and homemade snacks.
