Fun for families at Lavenham Guildhall

Educational as well as fun, with each room telling a different story about the Guildhall or Lavenham there’s lots to learn about medieval building and farming methods, famous Lavenham blue cloth and more.

Garden and jail house

Come and take a look at our courtyard garden and its dye plants, which have been used since medieval times.
Plus, there's the small village jail house where you can see what it would have been like to be locked up.

Food and drink

The tea-room has plenty to offer with a lovely selection of homemade cakes, delicious sausage rolls, light lunches and snacks from Jinny's kitchen.
The newly refurbished tea-room is a great meeting place for all the family to explore the delights of Lavenham from.
