Town Hall front

St Albans Town Hall is one of the city's landmarks. Grade II listed and situated alongside the Market Place, it is at the centre of the city. Built in 1831, the venue presents an impressive Palladian façade, painted cream and decorated with a columned first storey balcony.

The Town Hall is a beautiful wedding venue and party venue, and also ideal for business meetings and conferences. We hope that you will come and visit the Town Hall soon just to look around, book a function or obtain tickets for an event!
