Eastbourne Town Hall was built in traditional Victorian style in 1887. As you approach the Town Hall you are greeted with a magnificent pillared entrance, walking up the stone steps that will lead you into the main entrance hall with its original terrazzo flooring.
There are three beautiful ceremony rooms within the Town Hall:
* The Mayor's Parlour
* The Council Chamber
* The Court Room
The Court Room is situated on the ground floor. Both the Mayor's Parlour and The Council Chamber are located on the first floor, which can be accessed by the grand oak panelled staircase. A stunning stained glass window on the half landing provides an excellent backdrop for your photos.
For those who have difficulties managing the stairs there is a small lift, but please be aware that users must be able to stand (with support) while in the lift and will be required to leave their own wheelchair (where applicable) downstairs. We will supply a manual wheelchair for use on the first floor if required.
Free on street parking is available in the surrounding area and paid parking is available at Eastbourne train station car park.
Eastbourne train station is a 10 minute walk.
Please ensure that you and your guests allow plenty of time to park as it is very important that the ceremony begins on time.
