the Guildhall offers a good starting point for Lavenham (Lavenhams Green dilly dilly etc, investigate the rhyme) In fact the whole town/village has become an open air museum and the guildhall is the key to it! The tea shop will give you a base for the town (the Angel is better if you want to sample the magnificent local ales)... More

The Lavenhall Guildhall is clearly in a process of even more welcoming and enlightening transition. It serves visitor interests on a wide variety of levels: architectural insights, crafts and skills orientation, snippets of throwback life peeks, a variety of cultural strengths and excruciatingly hurtful limitations. If I were returning to the area in a few years, given its most recent... More

Lavenham is a very pretty village in Suffolk. A drive through the Main and side streets shows you wonky buildings in all colours. The Guidhall is a lively building too. While in town also visit the Church. Glad we spent time in this village.

This national trust place is worth a visit, not too big so doesn't take for ever to get round. Many interesting items to look at and read about.

A visit to the Lavenham Guildhall is a wonderful way to learn the history of the area in one fell swoop. If you visit the town (amazingly charming!), spend the time at the Guildhall.

Set in one of the prettiest Villages we have seen, Lavenham Guildhall is a wonky building with an interesting history, we liked the way they have dedicated different rooms to the different eras of the building and the village. Lots of information to read and displays. Nice shop and tea room too.

We visited the guildhall today and spent about an hour there. There is a lot of reading about the history and the different uses of the guildhall over the years and information on its restoration. They had costumes for people to try on and lots of fun artifacts to look at. The cellar was closed due to flooding so we... More

The Guildhall is well worth a visit, full of exhibits and a great way to find out about the history of the town. It also has a superb tearoom so is a great way to spend a few hours.

I visited Lavenham specifically for its large number of medieval and tudor-style buildings. The visit to the Guildhall brought it all together as there is a lot of local history included. I even saw a picture of the Tudor ceiling for the Angel Hotel (where I was staying) on the display in the basement. I took a photo of it... More
