Full Description
The Tolhouse Gaol has an eclectic history. Built in the 12th century as a merchant’s house, it later became the town courthouse and prison. Its walls have borne witness to riots and rebellions, heard the pleas of those accused of witchcraft, piracy and smuggling, and survived two bomb blasts during World War Two. Today the museum tells the story of crime and punishment in Great Yarmouth. Tolhouse Gaol offers an atmospheric backdrop for your wedding photographs. The Tolhouse Gaol offers three spaces for ceremonies. The Heighning Chamber on the first floor provides a historic setting for 50 guests. The Sarah Martin room on the ground floor can seat 40 guests. For a couple looking for wedding with a difference, the centuries old basement prison cells are perfect for a small, intimate ceremony.
