Was killing time before travelling home after a weekend break and my 13 year old son and I happened upon the Shire Hall and fantastic Old Court Room. We had it all to ourselves and my son had great fun trying on the judge’s wig,...More

We do not appreciate loud music being played into early hours of the morning during functions on a Saturday night. Surly the music should be turned down after 10 to ensure people living in the surrounding buildings can sleep

This Hall is the most prominent building as you walk up through the town of Monmouth. It is well preserved and hosts many events.

Henry V and the battle of Agincourt and Charles Rolls, the aviation pioneer in one square. Well worth a detour to see the impressive Shire Hall.

This was a great short visit, lots of rooms to explore and kids loves the dungeons where prisoners were once kept.

As part of a large walking group we had arranged to meet on the steps of The Shire Hall. As we browsed the interesting cabinets in the reception area the rain started to fall. Please thank the young man at the desk for his kindness...More
