Chester Town Hall dates back to 1865 and is rich in architectural beauty. The Gothic Revival Town Hall was officially opened in 1869 by HRH The Prince of Wales, Earl of Chester (later King Edward VII).

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.

Pop in and take a look around Monday to Friday 9am-5pm (excluding event days).
