Boston Guildhall Museum and Tourist Information Centre

Built in the 1390's for the Guild of St. Mary the Guildhall is an amazing survivor from the medieval period.

Built in the 1390's for the Guild of St. Mary the Guildhall is an amazing survivor from the medieval period. Handed over to the borough by Henry VIII in 1545, the building has been used for meetings, as a courtroom, a gaol, British restaurant and many other purposes. 

It is now a visitor attraction and museum and includes, amongst many tales, the stories of the Pilgrim Fathers being tried and imprisoned there in 1607.   With permanent and temporary exhibitions, interactive touch screens, sounds and smells and  children's activities, the Guildhall has something of interest for all.

Boston Guildhall is also licensed for civil wedding ceremonies and available to be hired for events.
