Oxford Town Hall: Oxfordshire’s most beautiful wedding venue
Steeped in history and surrounded by Oxford’s dreaming spires, the magnificent Oxford Town Hall is situated at the heart of this romantic and beautiful city. Full of Victorian splendour, this Oxfordshire wedding venue was opened in 1897 by HRH The Prince of Wales to serve the city and its inhabitants. With many uses since its construction, Oxford Town Hall has been used as a police station, with cells still beneath the Court Room, as well as a hospital during WWI. This Grade II* listed building has been lovingly maintained and proudly continues its long tradition as a premiere wedding venue in Oxfordshire.
