“Years of history”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 October 2012

Small - a quick visit - but packed full of history. Well worth including as part of the Totnes experience.

“Worth a visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2012

Guildhall dating back to 1553 when King Edward V1 granted Totnes a charter to use the former Benedictine priory building founded in 1088 as a Guildhall and school. Converted into a magistrate's court in 1624 and also used as a town jail until 1887. Used as a magistrate's court until 1974. Not a huge place but we had a very enjoyable visit.

“Lots of history”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2012

Lots of history to be learnt here but it's quite small and only worth a half hour visit.
