Devonport Guildhall & Column

About us

Fast becoming Plymouth’s heritage destination, Devonport boasts the city’s finest collection of Regency architecture including Foulston’s Grade 1 listed Devonport Guildhall and Devonport Column.  

Formerly a town in its own right, Devonport grew in influence in the 18th and early 19th centuries thanks to the docks and the presence of the Royal Navy. This success was celebrated in some stunning architecture, which miraculously escaped the prolific bombing of WWII which destroyed much of the city. 

Having been lovingly restored in recent years Devonport Guildhall and Column remain the heart of historic Devonport and offer visitors the chance to step back in time to Regency Plymouth and experience the city from a totally unique angle - 124ft off the ground!   

Devonport Guildhall is now part of the Real Ideas campus (along with Ocean Studios and The Market Hall), the building is a hub for small businesses, hosts a busy co-working community, and the old courtroom and Mayor’s Parlour host exciting markets and events for the community. Fresh bread is also made on site in their enterprise kitchen, courtesy of Heyl bakery. 

The Guildhall is currently closed to the public, but available to access as a co-work facility from April 19, once restrictions are lifted the facility will be open Monday – Friday from 9am-4pm.   

Please note – due to events at Devonport Guildhall some rooms may not be accessible at times. Devonport Column may also be closed due to private functions. 

Please call ahead of your visit for further information on 01752 395028.
