This place is stunning and centre stage for the town. Note the new build has scaffolding but does not detract from the beauty of the old build. do not just walk by stop and enjoy the beauty of the gothic building.

It was lovely to revisit the scene of my greatest academic achievement. Outside is even more stunning, especially as the artificial light illuminates so much more. Inside an historic and wonderfully maintained reminder of our past.

This year's Xmas party was held at the guild hall. Lovely venue. Great facilities for a party. Decorated well. And we had no complaints about the meal. Or indeed anything.

This building is amazing. We walked in off the street hoping for a glimpse and ended up exploring upstairs and down. The inside is opulent and gorgeous reflecting a time when Northampton was cashed up. Really worth a visit. Really nice to see a place...More
