About this Business
In a town famed for its historic buildings, the Guildhall rightly takes its place among the most fascinating.
Dating back to 1279, it is the oldest continuously-used civic building in Britain and proudly boasts a World War Two Royal Observer Corps Control Centre – the only surviving room of its kind in the country.
Bury St Edmunds Guildhall features interactive displays and collections taking you on a journey through time and history.
Visit The Court Room, the Banqueting Hall, the RAF’s WWII Royal Observer Corps Operations Centre Headquarters, the Tudor Kitchen, courtyards and fabulous open gardens.
Through each room The Guildhall explores 700 years of local history and tells the story of the people who lived it. Live re-enactors will also appear on special occasions.
