Choosing Camden Town Hall
Camden Town Hall remains a famous and increasingly popular venue choice for London marriages and civil partnerships. It is a stylish grade II-listed building designed in 1899 with many wonderful and interesting features.
Grand marble staircase
The grand white marble staircase provides a perfect setting for taking photographs. You will also be able to see the names of well-known public figures, past and present, including George Bernard Shaw, engraved into the marble slabs on the civic floor.
Apart from its central London location and unrivalled transport links, another good reason to choose Camden Town Hall is because of its proximity to beautiful open spaces and squares. Regent’s Park, including the rose gardens within Queen Mary's Gardens, can act as a perfect local stop-off for memorable wedding or civil partnership photos. Russell Square and St George’s Gardens are further options just a few minutes walk from the town hall.
These places are free for everyone to enjoy but please note that filming and photography used for professional publicity needs to be licensed by the Council.
Ceremony rooms in Camden town hall
Camden Town Hall contains seven stunning ceremony rooms that cater for any size of ceremony from small intimate ceremonies through to larger ceremonies for up to 180 guests. All ceremony rooms on the civic floor, except committee room 3a which is a more contemporary room, provide a classical setting and are decorated in floor-to-ceiling beechwood panelling, with art deco chandeliers, wall lights and six-foot marble fireplaces.
Virtual tours of the rooms are available to view on our website. Alternatively, you may come in at a time convenient to you and we will have a registrar available to give a tour of the rooms and answer any questions you may have. These arrangements can be made by telephoning or emailing the register office.
- Committee room 2 – up to 40 guests
- Committee rooms 1 and 2 combined – available on special request, up to 70 guests
- Committee rooms 3 and 3a – up to 15 guests
- Council chamber – up to 180 guests
- Ceremony suite – up to 26 guests
Camden’s impressive Council Chamber is the ideal venue for larger ceremonies. The design was based on a Saxon Court, where the King would sit at the head facing his council, who would sit in a semi-circle around him.
The colour scheme in the chamber is, however, based on the interior décor of the House of Commons.
Committee room 2
This is our most popular room on the civic floor. With its grand yet intimate atmosphere, it holds up to 40 people but is equally suitable for smaller parties. It is possible to make a special request to open the division to create a larger room for up to 30 additional guests.
Committee rooms 3 and 3a
If you would prefer a smaller venue, then either of these rooms are for you as they provide the setting for a more intimate ceremony.
Committee room 3a also has a spectacular panoramic view of the magnificently refurbished St Pancras Station.
The ceremony suite is bright and airy and features luxurious gold and cream soft furnishing covers to complement the décor. It boasts contemporary art, both in the waiting area and the suite.
Please note: fees include two registrars officiating the ceremony, two marriage certificates, and the use of the rooms.
