The Council Chamber

Located in the heart of the Town Hall and arguably one of the most impressive rooms, the Council Chamber offers a spectacular setting for your big day.

It is a double-height rectangular space, with a deep coved ceiling topped by a nine-metre-diameter dome, still illuminated by impressive Edwardian chandeliers.

It remains in its original horse-shoe shape which means that no matter where your guests are seated, they will have a great view of the proceedings.

Overlooking the chamber are two public galleries which can seat an additional 60 guests if required.
