According to the Colchester District Council website "the Town Hall is open to members of the public to look around".
Apparently not. I couldn't get past the security desk as I was told that casual visitors are not allowed in.

The town hall is the perfect place for a wedding ceremony or even a reception up in the moot hall. Different venues available.

It dominates the high street, popular with weddings and the clock tower and buildings ornate details typical confident Victorian design. Also bells often reminds me of the time when I'm lost on my allotment

Recently held a summer in the Moot Hall. An elegant and striking venue, highly recommended. The catering team are exceptional and they supplied a lovely meal and full bar for 140 guests.
