Hackney Town Hall is a historic wedding venue located in the heart of Hackney, East London. This working town hall features many original architectural features as well as modern facilities essential for twenty-first-century celebrations. Operating for over eight decades, this property has hosted many fabulous events, from weddings to live gigs.

Facilities and Capacity

The beautifully restored Assembly Hall is complete with original chandeliers and a sprung dance floor. This expansive hall is ideal for ceremonies and receptions that run long into the night. Large windows allow the natural light to fill the room, creating an airy and spacious vibe. You and your loved one can exchange vows before dancing the night away. The Assembly Hall can comfortably host up to 300 guests seated in a reception-style layout or up to 500 standing. For a slightly smaller gathering, the hall can be partitioned and split into two private event areas. If you desire an outdoor wedding but are put off by the unpredictable British weather, the Atria is the ideal choice. Featuring a state-of-the-art glass roof, this urban courtyard provides the light and setting of an outdoor space while being protected by the ever-pending British rain. The Atria can be configured to host ceremonies, cocktail hours, and memorable receptions of up to 200 people. Additional facilities include the lavish Bridgetown Bar; this glamorous and vintage bar makes for great cocktail hours before your reception. Here, you and your guests can mingle and sip delicious beverages made by professional bartenders.

Upon booking your wedding at Hackney Town Hall, their event management team will be on-hand to ensure that your festivities run as smoothly as possible.

For further convenience, a wedding coordinator will be present throughout your wedding to ensure that all suppliers know their roles on your magical day.

One of London's most beautiful town halls

I just love Art Deco architecture. It is simple yet elegant. If you are looking for an elegant venue for your wedding, Hackney Town Hall might just be perfect for you. And it will look stunning on your pictures.
