An Iconic Landmark

Our Gothic Revival town hall was built in 1865, and officially opened in 1869 by HRH The Prince of Wales, Earl of Chester (later King Edward VII).

Chester City Council is now housed in their new HQ opposite Chester Castle, the Town Hall remains a cultural icon for the city, and is open to the public for tours, events, weddings and exhibitions.

There are a range of sculptures/arts pieces to spot inside and around the building – all celebrating the historical significance of Chester.

Look out for:

  • War memorial commemorating 768 Cestrian soldiers who lost their lives during WWI
  • The plaques and shields decorating the walls of the staircase
  • Three Porch sculptures including Roman soldiers constructing the famous Chester city walls

Chester Town Hall is an ideal destination for charities and cultural events – we are pleased to offer 15% off the full rate for those within this sector.
