Visit The Guildhall

Baroque splendour for all to enjoy

Guildhall was the civic heart of Abingdon-on-Thames in the 18th and 19th centuries. Part of the front of the building dates from 1400 and the Roysse Room was a school at the time of Mary Tudor, established in 1556. Restored to its former status since transferring back to the Town Council in 2010, the glorious baroque rooms have been is use for receptions and public events.

Please note that the building is closed during 2018. As a historic building, there are more than fifteen varying floor levels so access has to be improved and a lift is being installed.

Please click here to access the area of the site dedicated to the Guildhall although booking is not possible. Follow local signs as the town's Information Centre has moved during works. It will not be possible to unlock the rooms for viewing unless this is in the programme for the September Heritage Open weekend. 

With any of the town's heritage buildings please check before travelling.
