Nice Little Museum
Jan 2020
Very small museum, but the Magna Carta and Elizabethan courtroom are nice. I was personally escorted to the courtroom with a lovely volunteer who shared all the history with me. Definitely worth a visit--it's free! Stop in if you're around. The outside makes for a nice photo, as well.

Brilliant local museum
Feb 2020
OK it’s not big but to quote Rutland’s motto 'Multum in Parvo' {Much in Little}. The items are very well displayed, extremely interesting and the signage short but informative. Then you go to the court room which is mind blowing! Add to this we meet a friendly and well informed receptionist and you have a perfect “visitor experience”!

Absolutely Incredible
Feb 2020
Sandwich is beautiful, and friendly. Came to the guildhall museum and Nicola kindly talked to us about the history of the land from when it was a port, up to recent times. We were the only ones in there so we felt like we got a private tour.

The historical pieces were fascinating, especially the Roman elements and the Magna Carta. And the crem de la creme was the court house. Absolutely spectacular.

Scout visit

The scouts really enjoyed seeing the historical objects in the museum. Particularly the Magna Carta entry.
The highlight of their visit was holding a mock trial in the court room

A trip down memory lane
Oct 2019
We returned to stay in Sandwich after 50 years and had a lovey morning in the Guildhall museum. The gentleman there was very informative and interesting, and then gave us a tour of the courtroom which was absolutely amazing. A real step back in time, worth a visit

We spent the morning at this museum and really found the staff helpful and the small museum very interesting. The old courtroom was especially amazing to see.

Interesting tour of the courtroom
Oct 2019
The Guildhall is closed to the casual visitor but you are able to visit the courtroom which was very interesting.
The museum is relatively small but well laid out with some interesting items on display.
