Town Hall at Christmas

Town Hall

Thornbury Town Hall, High Street, Thornbury, Bristol, BS35 2AR

The Town Hall is a grade II listed building which has a rich and diverse history, pieced together with the sterling efforts of Thornbury Museum and council staff. The earliest record we have dates back to 1590 when the site was home to a tavern. The current building was constructed in 1785 and has passed through residential use, a police station, magistrates court and finally converted to the Town Hall in 1994. We have retained as many historic features as possible, including the old police cells, stained glass window, grandfather clock and extensive cellar. We participate in the annual Heritage Open Doors Event each September where we open the building up to the public to come and view these features. If you would like to visit us, we can’t pull you a pint any more, but the Over 60’s Tea Room located in the side of the building may be able to offer you a custard cream. You can also take a trip upstairs to the Volunteer Centre located on the first floor. We can help with local issues including cemetery arrangements, green spaces and access to Tourist Information. Council and committee meetings are held in the Council Chamber here.
