High Street, City of Lincoln
Guildhall and Stonebow

Guildhall and Stonebow

An early 16th century town building which forms an archway over the main High Street. Home to City Council meetings and the heritage of Lincoln's local politics.

The Guildhall has been used since its construction in 1520, occupying the whole second floor of the Stonebow, and still plays host to Full Council meetings and City Council events.  It houses numerous pieces of regalia, including the sword of Richard II, Mayor’s Chains of Office and Mayor’s posy ring.

The word Stonebow comes from the ancient Norse word stennibogi which means stone arch.
