Set in the heart of the picturesque centre of Bury St Edmunds, the Guildhall sits alongside the elegant buildings of the town’s Medieval Grid. It features a charming Georgian frontage with elegant sash windows, ornate Tudor tower entrance and an impressive oak door.
Bury St Edmunds Guildhall has a range of beautiful rooms that reflect the building’s 800-year history. The Regency Banqueting Hall is light and airy, with stunning chandeliers and sash windows. The walls of the panelled Court Room are filled with historic paintings. The Robing room offers an intimate space for smaller wedding ceremonies, and the WW2 Observer Corps Ops Room provides a truly unique space for those with an interest in recent history. The Tudor Kitchen is an ideal smaller meeting room with its own kitchenette. There is also a well fitted catering kitchen for larger events.
The Guildhall offers several outdoor spaces to suit all occasions, from the secluded paved courtyard to the Walled Gardens which feature lovely lawns, flower borders with colour and interest all year round, a stunning pear tree and a traditional wooden gazebo.
The Guildhall is an ideal venue for your wedding ceremony and reception, for a family celebration or corporate event. Maximum numbers for formal dining – 80 with up to 12o for parties.
