Weddings at the Town Hall

The Wedding Ceremony Room at Cockermouth Town Hall is the perfect venue for your special day, without the big price tag.

Our Wedding Ceremony Room is situated in Cockermouth’s Grade II Listed Georgian Town Hall building. Originally constructed in 1840, Cockermouth Town Hall started its life as a Wesleyan Methodist Chapel before being converted to a Town Hall in 1934.

Our Ceremony Room can accommodate 54 people. (Including the couple)

This maximum number includes all those attending, the couple, witnesses, children/babies and all other guests, however anyone working, for example officiants, photographers, security, staff employed by the venue and third-party suppliers are not included.

COVID-19. Your booking may be subject to changes/cancellations at short notice.
