Lancaster Town Hall
Lancaster Town Hall in Dalton Square was officially opened on the 27th December 1909, by Lord Ashton.

It replaced the existing Town Hall, in Market Square, now the City Museum , as the then Lancaster Corporation had outgrown the building. The Corporation was unable to finance a new building but Lord Ashton offered to pay for a new Municipal building.

Lord Ashton was a local multi millionaire businessman and industrialist, who had made his fortune after inheriting 'Williamson's', his father's Oil Cloth and Linoleum business. Based on the Quay at Lancaster, 'Williamson's' exported their goods all over the world.

The Ashton Hall at the back of the town hall is a popular venue for concerts and events, and there are a variety of rooms, including the Banqueting Room, which are an ideal venue for your wedding ceremony.

To the side of the Town Hall is Lancaster`s War Memorial and gardens.
