How to find us

Vessel Beer Festival will take place in the historic Plymouth Guildhall, at the heart of Plymouth city centre. Originally built in the 1870s, this Grade II listed building was restored in the 1950s, and is one of very few city centre buildings to partially survive the Blitz and the subsequent redesign.

The Guildhall is a 12 minute straight walk from Plymouth railway station, and a 5 minute walk from Plymouth coach station. It is right next to Royal Parade where lots of local buses stop.
