Brighton Town Hall _ Main Entrance
Brighton Town Hall _ Main Entrance
The present Town Hall was built in 1830-2 by the town commissioners on the site of the former market in Bartholomews, the foundation stone being laid in April 1830 by T.R.Kemp . The building was designed in classical style by Thomas Cooper, in the form of a Greek cross but the southern wing was never erected because the necessary land could not be purchased.

The Town Hall is now a listed building of four storeys, with giant fluted Ionic columns forming porticoes above the entrances. It has proved inadequate for the purposes of modern local government, however, and municipal offices have been scattered throughout the town centre for many years. LinkExternal link
