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.
