Northampton Guildhall is a building which stands on St Giles' Square in Northampton, England.
It was built to the design of Edward William Godwin, begun when he was only 28, between 1861 and 1864, in neo-gothic style. As well as housing Northampton Borough Council, it is also used for a variety of civic purposes, such as weddings or civil partnerships. Historically the building had a court, now used as a meeting room known as the court room and prison cells in the basement.
