A space for events, shared co-work and community activity

Nestled in the heart of historic Devonport the Guildhall and neighbouring Column are Regency gems by the architect John Foulston, dating from the early 1820s. Renovated by Real Ideas and reopened to the public in 2010, Devonport Guildhall offers space for events, co-work and community activity.

The Column was reopened by Real Ideas in 2013 and offers stunning views across the city and beyond from the viewing platform 124ft above street level.
