The Moot Hall is one of the most important timber-framed public buildings in England. Dating from the first half of the 16th Century it originally contained six small shops on the ground floor and a spacious meeting chamber on the first floor. The Town Council still meets in the upper chamber.

The Moot Hall also now houses the Aldeburgh Museum.
