About Portsmouth Guildhall
Portsmouth Guildhall, a majestic building at the heart of Portsmouth, is most famous today as the city’s premier entertainment and events venue, but the history of this iconic local building also shines a light on the history of the whole city – not only through the role it has played as the civic home to the Lord Mayor, but also in the very walls of the building itself.
The Guildhall was originally completed in 1890 and designed in the neo-classical style by architect, William Hill, who was inspired to improve upon an almost-identical model that he had designed as Bolton Town Hall in 1873. After the Second World War, the building was rebuilt and re-opened by HM The Queen on 8th June 1959.
The very walls of the Guildhall reflect the building’s central place in the city’s identity. The glittering Star Chamber holds a mural which shows some of the city’s most famous historical moments, while the Chamber itself was inspired by the city motto, Heaven’s Light Our Guide.
The Guildhall is also home to some of the city’s best loved historical treasures, including the city of Portsmouth’s Civic Plate, which is nationally renowned as one of the finest collections in the country.
In recent times the Guildhall has enjoyed a number of uses. It is now home to the Council chamber, home to a number of local services and groups, including the Portsmouth Cultural Trust.
