Intriguing 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.
