Poole Register Office, Market Street, Poole BH15 1NP
Built in 1761, the historic Guildhall in the heart of Poole's old town is the home of the Borough of Poole's Registration Service and provides a charming venue for ceremonies.
The stunning Grade II* listed building, has a wealth of history attached to it. In the past it has had many uses, including being used as a magistrate's court, temporary parish church, a canteen, a meeting room for American soldiers during the Second World War, a teaching room as well as the town museum.
The Guildhall, after its recent refurbishment, now looks stunning and is the perfect venue for your ceremony. Its main feature is a large ceremony room, which can accommodate 120 guests. A smaller room is also available which seats approximately 10 guests.
The Guildhall has an awe inspiring façade with its cast iron and stone staircase presenting a grand backdrop for photographs.
Due to popular demand, from 2011 the Guildhall will be opening their doors on a Saturday afternoon (previously only available on Saturday mornings).
