“a trip back in time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 October 2013

If you want to know about Totnes and the history of the area then the Guild Hall is the place to go.
Take time to consider how horrid the lives of the poor was and how lucky we are to-day. An eye opener

“Old Court House”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2013

Take time out to have a look around this old building, which is still used as operational Town Council Chamber, but also has history of being a Court House, and Jail.

“Very interesting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 May 2013

Tucked away by the church in Totnes, this is a very old building with a fascinating history. You can see the old cells and the council rooms - extremely evocative.

“Highly recommended for democracy fans!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 November 2012

We had the good fortune to bump into one of the city councillors who introduced us to the mayor. They were very knowledgeable of the history and significance of this ancient building, which is still used as the HQ of the mayor and town council.

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