About

Croydon Town Hall will be opened for a limited number of guided tours, providing rare access this unique Victorian-style, Grade II listed building. Croydon Town Hall was designed by local architect Charles Henman and opened by TRH the Prince and Princess of Wales in 1896. The Town Hall is a Grade II listed building. Parts, including the former court rooms, have been converted for the Lifetimes Museum and exhibition galleries. Since the mid-1980s the Town Hall has been completely renovated and restored, and the Mayor's Parlour and the committee rooms have reverted to their original purpose.
