The Old Council House description

Local Authority (Town Hall etc)

Medium (1-150)

The Old Council House is an elegant, neo-Classical Grade II listed building which has many wonderful interesting features, including a grand sweeping staircase and outstanding decoration throughout with many original features.

It was built 1824 to 1827 by Sir Robert Smirke and is situated at the cross roads of Corn Street and Broad Street. This is right in the heart of Bristol and so has the convenience of being located near the main road and rail links.Conferences and meetings
In 2006, following a large restoration project, The Old Council House became the city Register Office and now has three superb recently refurbished rooms available for hire for meetings and events. These include the Lantern Room, the Bristol Room and The Grand Council Chamber.

The Bristol Room

is the perfect setting for those smaller meetings, training sessions or team away days. Although small it still has all the period features you would expect in a building of this nature.
