“Historic”

Royal Wootton Bassett Old Town Hall
Reviewed 29 July 2013 via mobile

Well worth a visit if you are interested in the history of old market towns and it's memorabilia. There are numerous photographs to look at including many from the old dairy which was demolished a few years ago.

A truly historic building, small but most interesting perspective of our town's past.
Always worth a visit.

This is a very small building, but has a wealth of information about the town and surrounding area.

Housed in a the old town hall, the building is of great interest in itself. Opening times are limited as is access. Its old and up a flight of stairs.

Free to get in, but please leave a donation as it is run by volunteers and needs to be maintained.

The Old Town Hall was built by the Clarendon family 300 years ago as a gift to the town. It has no toilet facilities and a single stairway provides access to the upper (and only) floor. The York stone pavement runs underneath. Inside is a diverse collection of memorabilia, photos and artifacts from the town's history, together with the official regalia. Only open twice a week (Wednesday and Saturday mornings) so check before you go.
