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).
It acted as the centre of government for region with the court rooms and cells still in use until XXX. Whilst today, 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.
