The Guildhall was originally completed in 1890. It was designed by Leeds architect, William Hill, who was inspired to improve upon an almost-identical model that he had designed as Bolton Town Hall in 1873. Unfortunately, Hill’s Guildhall was not even to last a century before the angry skies of the Second World War rained down a series of incendiary bombs onto the city in 1941.

On the 10th January, bombs gutted the original Guildhall, completely destroying the interior and roof and leaving only the outer walls and tower, which suffered enormous fire damage. In the course of the bombings that rocked the city, 930 civilians were killed, 1,216 were hospitalised and over 1,500 more were injured. However, the spirit of Portsmouth that survived the Blitz also ensured the survival of the Guildhall, which was rebuilt after the War and re-opened by HM The Queen on 8th June 1959. The building has stood as a memorial to the spirit and determination of Portsmouth and her people ever since.
