First opened in 1897 by the Prince of Wales, Oxford Town Hall is Victorian splendour at its finest. Grade II* listed, its opulent interiors, versatility and central city location make it a hugely popular wedding venue in Oxford that can host intimate weddings of 30, to large-scale celebrations of up to 650 people.

Incredible Spaces

Oxford Town Hall can host up to 650 people for a ceremony, and up to 300 for seated dining. Five exquisite spaces are licensed for civil weddings:

The Main Hall – decorated with modelled plasterwork and a sculptured high alcove ceiling, it is home to the Father Willis organ and is perfect for receptions with live music or DJ.

The Assembly Room – a wood panelled room featuring an open timber roof, monumental fireplace with a small minstrels’ gallery and an extensive collection of paintings throughout the room.

The Old Library – features an open timber roof, stained glass windows and American walnut wood panelling.

St Aldate’s Room – the wood panelled St Aldate’s room has a beautiful carved fireplace and stained glass window, and is perfect for intimate weddings.

The Court Room – beautifully unique and historic, the Court Room  has not only hosting many court sessions, but has  featured in films and TV shows.

Superior Service

Oxford Town Hall will hold only one wedding at any one time to ensure the best quality of service and experience offered at the venue.

“Although we work in a Victorian building, we don’t operate with a Victorian approach. We had very diverse weddings over the years and love seeing people from all sorts of backgrounds celebrate their lives. It’s incredibly satisfying to give someone the best day of their life.” Sue Varney, Sales & Events Supervisor
