Go Behind the Scenes at Portsmouth Guildhall

Discover the unique history of one of the city’s most iconic buildings through one of Portsmouth Guildhall’s new, monthly guided tours. 

In an informative 1 hour tour of the Grade II listed building which has seen over 125 years of Royal occasions, extravagant banquets and international artists, you will hear a feast of hidden gems, not just about the building, but the stories within. 

Having risen from the ashes to become one of the country’s leading music venues, you will access areas not normally open to the public and see how the popular concert and conference venue operates. 

Following the tour, relax in Café Guildhall with a cup of tea or coffee and a slice of fresh, homemade cake, included in the ticket price of £8.50. 

The first tour took place on Monday 3rd July, 2pm and will take place on the first Monday of every month thereafter. Spaces on the tours are extremely limited, please book early to avoid disappointment in person at our Box Office or call 023 9387 0200. 

Tours will vary each month depending on the event programme and accessible areas on the day.
