Victoria Hall in Dunns Lane is used by many groups and is also available for hire. The Gower Methodists website states that the building was built as a Gospel Hall in 1875-1876. It was left in a semi-derelict condition for some years before being used by the Salvation Army, who continued to use it until 1889. It was then bought by the Presbyterian Church of England, and named St David's Hall. The use of the premises was temporarily secured by the Methodist Church in 1899 who, in 1904, with its earlier debt cleared, bought the lease of the property together with the adjoining land. It was then that it was renamed the Victoria Hall. In 1915 the Red Cross were given free use of the Victoria Hall as a military hospital for the duration of the war. During this period a minor hall and kitchen were added.
The Hall was reopened for the Sunday School on Easter Sunday 1919. A major refurbishment of the premises was completed in 1994.
