The Town Hall

Located in the heart of the Town Centre the Town Hall offers a Chamber Room and Committee Room which are perfect to host a small meeting or larger conference, a wedding or civil ceremony, a wake, a birthday tea party, a naming ceremony, an exhibition and more. Each room is full of its own character.

The Town Hall has a ramp into the ground floor of the building, a stair lift and disabled toilet facilities.

The walls are adorned with commemorative boards, listing all the Town Mayors of Wallingford since 1231 to the present day.

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