About Wallingford Town Hall

Built in 1670 to replace the medieval Guild Hall, Wallingford Town Hall is Grade I listed.

Throughout the centuries the Town Hall has had numerous uses ranging from being the town’s lock-up and a debtors’ prison, to the borough courtroom, to hosting royalty, such as Queen Elizabeth II who appeared on the Town Hall balcony during her visit in 1956.

Wallingford Town Hall now serves as a perfect venue for weddings, civil ceremonies, conferences, meetings and private functions.

The Main Chamber

With views over the historic Market Place, the Main Chamber creates a beautiful backdrop for events.

The room can comfortably accommodate up to 60 guests, for a wide range of functions, including civil ceremonies, naming ceremonies, private parties and conferences.

The walls are adorned with portraits and commemorative boards, listing all the town mayors since 1231 to the present day.

The Committee Room

The Committee Room has the perfect ambience for smaller, more intimate functions or events such as tea parties and meetings.

The room can accommodate up to 20 guests and like the Main Chamber, displays artefacts of Wallingford’s impressive history, including the town mace, dated 1650 which is said to have been copied for the mace of the house of commons.
