Launceston Guildhall and Town Hall

Launceston Guildhall and Town Hall is a municipal building in Western Road in Launceston, Cornwall, England. The building, which was the meeting place of Launceston Town Council, is a Grade II listed building.

The county assizes had been held the town since 1201. Latterly, the venue for this was the old guildhall which was a medieval timber building that accommodated both the nisi prius court and the crown court. It stood at the corner of Broad Street and High Street in the town centre and was completed in 1647. However, after the assizes moved to the new Shire Hall in Bodmin in 1838, the old guildhall was no longer required and it was demolished in 1840.
