With its distinctive witch’s hat tower and its bell, clock and sun dials the Town House has been the focus of life in Dunbar since the 16th century.

Our staff are always on hand to chat about the town and the history of the building. You can visit the council chamber – scene of the infamous witch trials – and a grimly atmospheric jail cell.

The building is accessible on all levels and is home to a museum and gallery with changing historical and art exhibitions as well as a local history display area and research room managed by the Dunbar and District History Society.

Details about free visits over Doors Open Days weekend can be found below, but if you can’t make it along in person we hope you will enjoy the specially created virtual tour of Dunbar Town House below.
