This stunning medieval historic building and museum is a must-see when travelling to Boston. Built in the 1390's the building is a testament to the wealth and influence of the Guild of St Mary at a time when Boston's power as a centre of trade was second only to London.

This wonderfully preserved building, with a wealth of original features, has survived the centuries and is to be enjoyed as one of Boston's finest visitor attractions. A wealth of stories, secrets and experiences are told and shared throughout the building including the history of the Guild of St Mary, international trade with the Hanseatic League, Henry VIII dissolve of the Guild, the foundation of the Corporation of Boston, and the very famous trial and imprisonment of the Pilgrim Fathers.

The Guildhall is also home to the town’s museum collection where displays and exhibitions bring life to the stories told, and a stunning venue for civil ceremonies and private functions.

The heritage-laden Banqueting Hall at the Guildhall is available for private hire and licensed for weddings and offers a historic backdrop that cannot be matched. The wedding ceremonies take place before the great west window in the Banqueting Hall where, for hundreds of years, people have celebrated their most important days.

Boston Tourist Information Centre is situated within Boston Guildhall Museum and is the perfect place to go for top tips and advice for visitors navigating the city centre. Admission to the museum is free and it is open from Wednesday to Saturday.
