Hull Guildhall

Peek inside this stately and historic building in central Hull and marvel at the array of opulent sculptures and other features.

As the seat of the Hull City Council, the Hull Guildhall is among the most important and iconic structures in the area. The building, whose central tower rises above its surrounding plaza, also serves as a venue for banquets and conferences. Capture photos of the impressive façade of the building. 

Consider the rich history of the guildhall, which has had several incarnations in Hull since the first in 1333. As you look around the exterior of the building, notice the partial damage still visible from bombing during World War II. 

Admire the Baroque Revival front of the impressive structure, which has several central columns hoisting a strong pediment. A clock tower rises above the pediment, with its own flurry of pillars and a spire. Gaze up at the intricate sculptures adorning the top of the building’s walls. 

Enter the complex through the eastern entrance, across from the outdoor statue of the 19th-century shipping magnate Charles Henry Wilson. Inside, admire the majestic Grand Staircase, flanked by an elegant sculpture of King Edward I. The steps lead up to such stately chambers as the Reception Room, the Banqueting Hall and the Civic Suite.  

The site has accessible features, with disabled bathrooms and parking spaces as well as wheelchair ramps. Make use of the free Wi-Fi in the building. The hall opens to the public Monday through Friday from early morning until late afternoon. 

The Hull Guildhall is located between the central commercial district and the Museums Quarter in the heart of the city. Arrive at the Hull railway station and walk east for about 12 minutes to reach the structure. Visit other sights in the area, such as the Hull Maritime Museum, the Wilberforce House Museum and the Statue of Ghandi.
