Bury St Edmunds Guildhall is now open for pre-booked tours!

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. 

Explore the Guildhall on one of their guided tours:

The Guildhall Tour – the story of one building and one community, through a millennium.

The Operations Room Tour – uncover the hidden story of the Royal Observer Corps, who helped win the Battle of Britain.

Food, Glorious Food Tour – a history of the ingredients that shaped our daily dining habits.

Adapt and Change – discover how the Guildhall managed to survive through 900 turbulent years.

Celebration, Commemoration & Conflict – the Guildhall has been at the centre of great local historical events, and on occasions even been an influence on the wider national stage.

We’ll do our best to schedule your visit to a time and date that suits you – the more notice you give us, the better.

Tickets are £7.50 per person. Children under 12 go free. Book at https://burystedmundsguildhall.org.uk/guildhall-tours/
