Welshpool Town Hall, Town Halls Welshpool, Powys - Wales where to go, what to see and where to stay in Wales


Broad Street Welshpool Powys Wales
Welshpool Town Hall dominates the townscape of the border town of Welshpool and is arguably the most prominent building in the town. The impressive clock tower houses the Town Clock which is still hand wound to this day. The Town Hall was built around 1810 after its predecessor was considered too small and demolished. It has a stone faced facade with an impressive entrance leading to a first floor that houses the old courtroom, council chamber and assembly room. The ground floor boasts a market and the old Corn Exchange (now used for coffee mornings and other community events). On Mondays and Saturdays each week the market operates with many stalls selling a variety of goods. A Farmers Market is held from 8am on the first Friday of each month in Welshpool Town Hall, with all the stalls you expect from such a market, selling locally grown, reared or produced food stuffs. The town hall is also central for the Christmas celebrations including the Welshpool Winter Festival that takes the form of a "CHRISTMAS MARKET", and the Christmas Lights procession.
