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.

Booking and Prices

We are no longer taking bookings for hire of the Old Town Hall due to the planned refurbishment and redevelopment of the building into a new museum and gallery for the city, which is slated to open in mid-2018.  For more information on the planned project please see:
