About Bury St Edmunds Guildhall

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. 

The Guildhall presents the history of the unique principal rooms (The Court Room and Banqueting Hall), the RAF’s WWII Royal Observer Corps Operations Centre Headquarters room, the Tudor Kitchen, the external courtyards and open gardens, through interactive displays and collections, targeted education programmes supporting the national curriculum and a sensory experience for people with disabilities. 

The Guildhall will have live re-enactors and volunteers to guide you around the building on a journey through time.

Bury St Edmunds Guildhall is currently open on Sundays only.

Opening hours:

Sundays 11am-4pm (free admission in November and December)

If you wish to organise group visits, tours or private hires at other times, please contact us.
