Town Hall Tour and Afternoon Tea

Join one of our guides and embark on an illuminating tour. Inside you’ll discover the Mayor’s official Parlour, the Mayor’s official Parlour, the Council Chamber and the impressive Ashton Hall, before being ‘sent down’ from the Old Courtrooms into the atmospheric subterranean Police Cells. Along the way, uncover gems including the Olympic Torch, Gillow’s centrifugal table, and the Ashton Hall’s grand concert organ.

After joining us for a guided Town Hall Tour, experience one of England’s most beloved rituals and treat yourself to an Afternoon Tea in the Mayors Official Parlour. Indulge in a selection of traditional English finger sandwiches and cakes made using locally sourced ingredients provided by the Printroom Café and Bar. Choose to wash it down with an Atkinsons Filter Coffee, Lancaster Tea or individual small bottle of Prosecco.
