The Town Hall was opened in 1877 and with its imposing Gothic-style facade is one of the city's major landmarks. One of its courtyards , complete with cobbled pavement and gas lamps , has frequently been used for television costume dramas. The interior with its wonderful sweeping staircase is just as formidable while the Great Hall contains a selection of paintings by Ford Madox Brown. Guided tours are available on request and rooms can be hired out , book signings, church meetings and old fashioned tea dances all take place here from time to time.
