  • Beautiful old building - has so much history in it. Recommend taking a tour to look at all the old pictures, the council chambers and the ballroom. The gardens out the front are always a pleasant change from the concrete jungle, and are changed with each season.
  • We're lucky to have this as our local town hall. Great place to visit on business. The staff are very professional and helpful. Avoid going during lunch hour though, as everything takes longer.
