Weddings at Tavistock Town Hall

Category: 

The Town Hall was designed by Edward Rundle, architect to the 7th Duke of Bedford. It was opened on the 2nd February 1864 with a Grand Ball which went on until 4am as reported by the Tavistock Gazette of the day. The building at the time also housed a Savings Bank, Parish Council offices and a Market Keepers residence. It was built over the site of Mathew Street, Lower Brook Street and Lower Market Street. Constructed of local stone in the Late Perpendicular Gothic style, it boasts a stunning main hall measuring 64 ‘ x 42’, with paneled walls and a superb maple floor, along with other historic and interesting rooms including the Mayors Parlour. Due to radical new taxation laws in 1910, the Town Hall, along with other local buildings, passed from the 11th Duke of Bedford’s estate into the freehold ownership of the Town Council. Over a century later and the building is still serving the community and forms the focal point of the town centre.  

Now boasting newly refurbished kitchen and bar areas and with our recently acquired civil ceremony license the town hall makes for Tavistock's premier wedding venue. Friendly and experienced staff are on hand to make your special day memorable and are more than happy to pass there experience on to you to make the organization of your day as stress free as possible. And all at no extra cost to you!...
