With a maximum capacity of 55 guests this versatile space can accommodate intimate groups or a large entourage equally well.

The Old Town Hall is located right in the heart of the town just a stone's through from the river Ouse and it's picturesque Embankment. There is a wide choice of restaurants and other establishments that you may wish to go on to after your ceremony and ample parking is provided throughout the town centre. Outside the venue your guests may choose to be dropped off or picked up on St. Paul's Square where there is room for cars to do so.

Inside the venue your guests can mingle at the foot of the curved staircase until they are ready to go up into the Ceremonies Room and for those with mobility issues there is a lift to all floors.

 

OTH

 

Until recently our Ceremonies Room was used as the Council's Chamber for meetings and mayoral functions. The hall has a rich history which is reflected in its fabric and the hall's original period features have been lovingly restored as part of the recent refurbishment. Windows to both sides of the room allow for plenty of natural light, and the shields and heraldry of the stained glass windows add a gentle touch of colour.
