Hastings Register Office

Hastings Town Hall, Queens Road, Hastings, TN34 1QR
Hastings Register Office is located at Hastings Town Hall. A beautiful Victorian building situated in the heart of Hastings.

Once inside this historic building you will find a wealth of grandeur, including a Gothic style marble staircase and original stained-glass windows. Halfway up the marble staircase, is a floor to ceiling stained glass window, providing the perfect backdrop for photos.

The Town Hall provides you the choice of three ceremony rooms.

Room capacities may differ during the pandemic. The Mayor's Parlour (Capacity 15)

Located on the first floor, the Mayor's Parlour is ideal for an intimate celebration, accommodating up to 15 with seating for up to 8. Luxuriously decorated in blue and gold, with a beautiful fireplace and stunning chandelier.

The Rossetti Room (Capacity 30)

Named after the poet and painter Dante Gabriel Rossetti, who in 1860 wed artist and poet Elizabeth Siddal here in Hastings. Inspired by the Victorian Arts and Crafts movement, the decor includes William Morris-style wallpaper and two bottle green Chesterfield style sofas, which provide seating for up to 8. A print of Rossetti's 'La Ghirlandata' hangs above the fireplace, and a copy of their marriage certificate features on the adjacent wall. The Rossetti Room is the only ceremony room located on the ground floor.

The Council Chamber (Capacity 60)

Set behind large ornate doors this magnificent oak-panelled room, with large, vaulted ceiling, is perfect for the slightly larger celebration. A spacious room furnished with rich red carpet and chairs, with a central aisle, stained glass windows and an impressive Bath stone fireplace.
