Sudbury Town Hall

Old Market Place, Sudbury, Suffolk, CO10 1TL

Built by Thomas Ginn of Sudbury 1826/27 and opened for use in 1828. It is a fine and well-proportioned building in the Greek classic style occupying a prestigious site overlooking the Old Market Place.


Today The Town Hall is well used as a civic space: home to Sudbury Town Council offices, Sudbury Tourist Information Centre, Suffolk County Council Registration Services and is also open to the public as Sudbury's free Heritage Centre & Museum with a range of fascinating artifacts and interactive displays offering a window into Sudbury's rich history. The Mayor's Parlour is well used as part of civic events and by local charitable organisations and community groups.


The impressive Assembly Room is available for hire and is suitable for a wide range of events from conferences, to dinners, lectures to classes... take a look at our hire charges and booking information below.

At the rear is the old and impressive entrance to the former town gaol, which held the prisoners overnight before the assizes. This has been skilfully adapted to serve as a fitting entrance to The Sudbury Heritage Centre.
