About Chester Town Hall

Town Hall, Northgate Street, Cheshire
Cheshire, CH1 2HJ

The grey and red sandstone Gothic-style Town Hall, with its tower and spire rising to a height of 160 feet was completed in 1869. Today, the building retains its Victorian magnificence and is a prestigious venue, available for public hire for weddings ceremonies and celebrations. The venue even incorporates a courtroom, a great backdrop for memorable photographs on your big day.

The Victorian carved stone foyer and waiting hall with a sweeping staircase where guests can gather provides a rich colourful backdrop for photography, a reminder of a day poor weather cannot diminish.

Each stunning room can cater for every part of your day from 30 - 300 people making it one of the most popular Wedding Venues in the North West.

We had the most perfect day
Venue Service

By Lauren & Matthew, on 18 Feb 2020Date of Wedding - 15 Feb 2020

We had the most perfect day - we had high expectations of it being perfect and it exceeded those too. It's just starting to sink in a little bit now and it's quite an overwhelming and humbling feeling with the effort that everyone goes to ensure the day goes so well. I can't really thank you enough to be honest; from start to finish you have been so helpful and supportive and you actually made the planning of the biggest event of our lives so incredibly straightforward. I know this is your job so I hope that doesn't sound patronising, but I have friends who haven't always had such a positive wedding planning experience as we have. As soon as I walked into the Town Hall, I knew I wanted to get married there and it was a fabulous experience. Matthew's Canadian relatives were particularly enamoured by the venue. Many thanks once again, Lauren and Matthew

My husband and I selected the Council Chamber Room at Chester Town Hall for our wedding ceremony in October 2019 and we could not be happier with the choice we made. Katie and the team at Horseradish were incredibly supportive and professional from the first meeting to view the venue, through to the day itself. Not only is Chester Town Hall a stunning venue, but the team made every effort to make our day personal to us. We were encouraged to use the space as we wished for photos, and as a result we have some fabulous confetti throwing shots on the sweeping stairwell and, of course, in the fantastic wooden thrones in the Council Chamber Room itself. On the day itself we received a very touching email from Katie wishing us all the best for our big day, and the team on hand went out of their way to look after us when, post the ceremony, it proceeded to rain heavily for 20 minutes. We were not rushed out of the building, but encouraged to wait until the weather had passed. You might expect a town hall venue to book weddings back-to-back, but it really felt like Chester Town Hall don’t over crowd their events calendar to make sure they take care of their guests. We would highly recommend Chester Town Hall as a wedding venue. It ticked all the boxes for us and more! Thanks so much again! Amy & Oli

Thank you so much for everything

We had a fabulous day

By Berni, on 23 Aug 2019Date of Wedding - 05 Jul 2019

We had a fabulous day and everything went very smoothly and to plan. The weather was great and the venue looked lovely. The glass of fizz as we walked out was a lovely touch! We had the most fabulous, special day and we thank you for your part in that.

It was the perfect setting!
Venue Service

By Jon, on 23 Aug 2019Date of Wedding - 22 Jun 2019

Everything on Saturday 22nd June was superb. The two staff members who were on hand to help us on that day were exceptional and nothing was an issue for them to ensure the day went smoothly. We had the best day of our lives, and a large part of that was because of how excellent the Town Hall team and the Horseradish events team were with us and our wedding party. I would have no problems ever recommending the venue in future. It was the perfect setting!

The memory on the day will be with us forever

We had a great day! The venue was just perfect for what we wanted. The room was intimate and felt full of history and atmosphere with great views of the Cathedral. The memory on the day will be with us forever.

The best day of our lives

Sharon and I wanted to thank you for all your support making our wedding day so so special. All the front of house folks at Horseradish were amazing and the food cooked to perfection. If you could relay our gratitude to those folks for helping make it the best day of our lives, we would very much appreciate it.

Just wanted to say a big thank you

By Mary & Robert, on 02 Dec 2016Date of Wedding - 05 Nov 2016

Just wanted to say a big thank you from myself and Rob for all your help in making our day very special. Every member of your team went out of their way to help in any way they could on the day and I would be grateful if you could pass on our thanks to all of them.

An absolutely wonderful day.
Venue Service

By Matthew and Hannah, on 02 Dec 2016Date of Wedding - 03 Sep 2016

I just wanted to send you our thanks for an absolutely wonderful day. Everything went like clockwork, and the staff could not have done more for us. Staff were fantastic and a real credit to you guys. I even saw the waiting staff looking out for the little ones and helping where needed. Our guests were blown away by the food - it was superb and beyond our expectations if I am honest. We had a number of people say it was the best wedding they had ever been to and praise doesn't get much better than that. The lovely registrar, the venue, the service, the room, the DJ - it was all fantastic and the day will remain in our memory forever. Thank you for all that you did in organising this, we couldn't have asked for more. Kind regards, Matthew and Hannah

Courteous, helpful, efficient
Venue Service

By Sophie & Neil’s, on 02 Dec 2016Date of Wedding - 12 Aug 2016

We wanted to write to express our appreciation of the hard work of all your staff at the wedding ceremony of my daughter Sophie. The team were excellent. Nothing was too much trouble. They were courteous, helpful, efficient and ensured that everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. They were approachable and always had a smile to share on a happy occasion. The food was excellent which is a credit to your chefs. We also wanted to thank especially the ladies who on realising my Mum could not drink milk went and purchased soya milk for her. They also ensured that before they finished their shifts that my Mum and her friend were served a fresh pot of tea. Truly service above and beyond.

beautiful and magical
Venue Service

By Rosie & Motasem, on 02 Dec 2016Date of Wedding - 16 Jan 2016

I want to say a huge thank you to you and your team for making the whole day as beautiful and magical as it was. To everyone who talked to me and kept my nerves down, to making it run as smoothly as possible. Thank you. I wish to thank you for helping me since September and organising everything. To the gentleman who took me into the room and waited to open the final door for me to walk down the aisle. To the guy who took my iPod and did the music - I didn't get to say thank you to him and for making everything in my head come true for how the music was played. The hall is spectacular and my London friends fell in love with Chester. It was a perfect day. Thank you so much
