Guildhall Museum, Boston, Lincolnshire

Guildhall Museum, Boston, Lincolnshire

A lesser known museum in the market town of Boston, this delightful collection is housed within the ancient Guildhall, built during the late 14th century.

England, under 16th century Tudor rule, witnessed the Dissolution of the Monasteries so the building was converted into a town hall.

Today, it is a museum which tells the story of Boston, explaining, too, the history and importance of the port. It is a superb medieval building to behold.

The Guildhall is believed to have been the place where William Brewster, William Bradford and their followers (the Separatists, later to be known as the Pilgrim Fathers) were taken following their arrest after trying to flee England.
