"The Guildhall" Harwich Favorite Tip by Ash59

Harwich General: 14 reviews and 15 photos

  The Guildhall, Harwich
by Ash59

Favorite thing: The Guildhall was built in 1769 and resides in Church Street. It stands on the site of "The Bear" (public house) where the council had met since 1673.

It is a grade one listed building and contains medevial wall paintings, as well as graffitti carved by prisoners who were incarcerated here. The Council Chamber, Mayor's parlour and other rooms may be viewed by appointment only.

Fondest memory: Telephone: - 01255 507211
Open Monday to Friday, 9.30am to 12.30pm
