“Interesting surprise”
Review of Dover Town Hall

Dover Town Hall
Reviewed April 3, 2014

Was in Dover overnight recently. Up early 2nd day, out on my wanderings, happened upon this place. A hidden gem. It's origins go back many years. Unfortunately was out & about too early to go in, had to move on straight after b'fast so will keep this one on my list 're-visit in future'
Unable to give more details i.e. admission fee, toilets, access etc.as it wasn't open at 06.30 hrs !

The key to the Town Hall is it twins functional with historic. I still lament the loss of the fabulous Dover Gaol experience. But on the tour you can see the old magistrates court. I love the chambers and was very impressed with the wooden rails and portraits. I have been to so many different functions here. Concerts, a boxing match, discos, weddings, work events, and it does them all well.

It’s amazing that the town hall has survived for over 800 years, and remains a ‘working’ building. Throughout the centuries, Kings, Queens and Prime Ministers would have been here, as well as Pilgrims, Monks, Naval Stores and Dunkirk evacuees to mention some. The Work of the Arts and Crafts architect William Burges can be seen throughout the building, and the 150 year old painted windows telling much of the town’s history have to be seen. Volunteers run tours for a nominal amount every Wednesday

I have walked past so often and not bothered to go in. Well today I did and boy am I glad about that! it is great to look around and picture what it must have been like when first built. It is used for a number of events and I feel not used often enough.

Open on Wednesdays these four,The Connaught Hall,the Council chamber and the StoneHall founded in the thirteenth century and refurbished by William Burgess with its wonderful Victorian stained glass showing scenes from Dover's past. Lastly there is the Mayors parlour.
You will receive a good welcome from the Volunteers as you enter and they will enthusiastically show you the building they are so proud of. Don't miss it .
