  • The Guildhall itself is unpretentious and kept much as it was in the period in which it was built. It stands in a large, quiet square in this, probably the most strikingly historic large Suffolk villa...  more »
  • Provides a very interesting insight into the fascinating history of this beautiful woollen trade town and its varying fortunes throughout the centuries. 
  • What an interesting National Trust House property. Very knowledgable guide. Facinating social history. 
  • The village of Lavenham itself has hundreds of ancient houses all leaning and holding each other up. The Guildhall played a pivotal role throughout the history of Lavenham. Now owned by the National Trust, a visit to the Guildhall is a good way to spend a couple of hours learning about the history of the building. Down in the cellar, you'll find a nice display detailing the history and prehistory of the area. On the other floors, you'll find stories of the building and people. It is definitely worth joining the National Trust if you enjoy days like this. It doesn't take many visits to pay for your membership fee, and you also benefit from free car parking, many of which are around the coast.
  • The national trust has put great effort into telling the story of this small property. Interesting explanation of the wool and weaving trade that made this region wealthy at one time.
  • This small town is saturated with quirky beautiful buildings.
  • Impressive on the outside but not a great deal to see inside
  • Lovely town but not many places to eat or shop.
