Llantrisant Guildhall is undergoing a major transformation project to deliver a heritage and visitors' centre for the ancient town.
Following a £1.1million restoration project, it is hoped the Guildhall will become one of the major attractions for visitors to south Wales. As a heritage centre it will prove invaluable to anyone fascinated by the history of one of Wales’s most prominent towns.
Family historians can visit the site to research the story of their Freeman ancestors, members of a tradition stretching back to the 14th century. With artefacts and numerous treasures on show, from the 17th century silver mace to the Loving Cup and historic Freeman’s Roll along with a Dr William Price exhibition, the Guildhall will offer a glimpse into the history of the town.
Specially designed education facilities will allow school children the opportunity to learn all about Llantrisant’s famous residents and its fascinating tales of bloodthirsty battles and captured kings.
The elegant Grade II listed building promises to be a popular venue to hire for that special occasion, standing in the shadow of the beautiful ruins of a Norman Castle, or even a business meeting or conference.
With a packed programme of fascinating guest speakers, rolling exhibitions and permanent displays, Llantrisant Guildhall with enchant, excite and enthrall.
