Medieval stories

Set in the lovely village of Lavenham, the Guildhall of Corpus Christi tells the story of one of the best-preserved and wealthiest towns in Tudor England.

When you step inside this fine timber-framed building, you'll feel the centuries melt away. You can discover the stories of the people who have used the Guildhall through its almost-500 years at the heart of its community, and learn about the men and women who have shaped the fortunes of this unique village.

We have a wonderful array of gifts and local produce in our gift shop and a varierty of homemade tasty treats in our beamed tea-room for you to enjoy.

After, you can explore the picturesque streets of Lavenham, lined with shops, galleries and more than 320 buildings of historic interest.

Come and see all the stories and the new musuem "our village through time" when we open in March.
