Tour Times

From Friday 1 July we regret that we will no longer be offering tours of the Council House on Sunday mornings. You can still book a tour of the Council House, simply complete the booking form and we’ll get back to you.

Please note however that as the Council House is a busy working building, it may not always be possible to have access to all of the floors and rooms on the date that you request.
