In line with the Governments Guidance, Boston Guildhall will be closed until further notice.

Visitors, users and hirers of the museum with existing bookings or pre-booked tickets which are during the closure will be contacted. 

We are contactable for museum, wedding or private hire enquiries via email or by answerphone 01205 365954 only at this time.

When the current restrictions are lifted and we are in a position to offer access in line with the governments guidance to the museum, access will be through pre-booked tickets only which are available through Eventbrite.  You will have the option of a FREE self-led tour or a paid guided tour and the option to include a goodie bag if you wish to.

We are pleased to share that in August we received the Visit England “We’re Good to Go” kite Mark and which demonstrates that we are able to meet the government’s guidelines on managing the reopening of the venue in response to Covid19 in August 2020.  We will continue to review the guidance and advice to ensure that we are Covid Compliant. 

Boston Guildhall Museum is also licensed for wedding ceremonies – if you would like more information, or to view the venue as you consider possible locations for your day, please contact us direct to make an appointment.

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 Pilgrims.
