The Windsor Guildhall

About

For over 300 years, the Windsor Guildhall has been the centre of charm, elegance and grandeur.  Built in 1689 to be the focus of civic life, we have been privileged to host royalty and celebrity.  Now you are invited to share in this iconic building.  Through our strong links with the royal family, the Windsor Guildhall is a celebration of the opulent with a fine collection of royal portraits – many of which were gifted to us by the sovereign of the day – and two magnificent chandeliers, on loan to us by HM The Queen. 

Whether you are looking to host a drinks reception, a banqueting experience or a venue for your wedding ceremony, the Guildhall can provide a real sense of moment for your special day. 

You are welcome to make an appointment to visit the Guildhall by contacting us on 01628 796284.

You can also view the Guildhall through our online tour.

Please note that the Windsor Guildhall function rooms are on the first floor. There is no lift on the site, however a stannah chair lift is available.
