Having visited Oxford for the first time for a wedding, we were very impressed with Oxford's Town Hall. The architecture is well maintained and the staff were very professional, especially those serving at the reception. The grand staircase is wonderful, but could do with better lighting. The wedding was at St Aldate's church a short walk to the Town Hall,... More

This is a fine example of Civic Architecture but apart from the very small Museum of Oxford and a cafe the Town Hall is used for Oxford Council meetings and the various Civic rooms are not open to the public. A pity really as it could , with a little imagination be a visitor attraction in its own right.

My sister choose this venue for her wedding this year and I was initially surprised at the selection having been to the town hall numerous times but not knowing it was used for weddings. The ceremony room is tucked away and very spacious for a moderate sized wedding party. The reception room was beautiful and allowed for a dance floor,... More

Most visitors to Oxford visit other venues like the terribly crowded Shambles or stand in a line waiting to get into Betty's tea room, but they should consider making an effort to step inside its less touristy Town Hall. On the ground floor there is a very informative (and free!) museum with aspects of Oxford and English history. Upstairs there... More
