Access Statement for Boston Guildhall

Introduction

Built in the 1390's this 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 museum collection where displays and exhibitions bring life to the stories told, and it is a stunning venue for civil ceremonies and private functions.

The museum is over two floors with lift access to the first floor. With interactive touch screens in some of the rooms, large text panels to give an over view, sound affects and smells and trails for our younger visitors and dressing up! you should allow at least an hour to view this beautiful building and the exhibitions.

A small shop for souvenirs is located near the entrance along with Boston's Tourist Information Centre.

We look forward to welcoming you. If you have any queries or require any assistance please phone 01205 365954 or email ticboston@boston.gov.uk.
