sudbury Town Hall

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 home to Sudbury Town Council offices, Sudbury 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.

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.
