Chester Town Hall is a designated Grade II listed building in the heart of Chester.

After the previous exchange building was burnt down, a competition was held to build a new town hall. The bid was won by William Henry Lynn of Belfast and the building you see before you now opened in 1869. Designed in a Gothic Revival style and echoing its neighbour, the Cathedral, the Town Hall boasts stunning interiors with glorious murals, oil paintings, stained glass windows and beautiful flooring.

Today, the Town Hall has maintained its beauty for over 150 years and proudly serves as the base for the city's Lord Mayor and civic functions. It provides space for local residents to host community and charity events and is available to hire for a number of private events.

Chester Town Hall will be opening its doors once more! Enjoy a tour led by the Town Hall Keeper and get to know more about the history of the building; from its opening in 1869, right up to modern day uses and events. The tour will culminate with a civic regalia talk led by the Lord Mayor’s Attendant, providing you the opportunity to get up close to these unique treasures whilst learning about the history of the Lord Mayor and why they have a sword and mace!
