About the room

At the top of the impressive marble staircase is the largest room at the Town Hall, the Council Chamber, featuring a spectacular vaulted ceiling, beautiful stained-glass windows and the perfect red carpet for your entrance.

This historic, pet-friendly room also features ornate carved wood panelling commemorating past Islington mayors and dignitaries, and is still an important part of the democratic process, holding full council meetings regularly. The bespoke red leather and oak pews with folding desktops and ink wells provide a charming link to the room's heritage.

Despite the size and capacity of this grand space, the seating layout retains intimacy. The horseshoe seating means none of your guests will be more than five rows from you and your partner, making this room ideal for any size of ceremony.
