Caxton Hall
Caxton Hall
On the corner of Caxton Street and Palmer Street, Caxton Hall is Grade II listed primarily for its historical associations. It was opened as Westminster Town Hall in 1883 and then was used for a variety of purposes including a concert hall and venue for public meetings, including those by the Suffragette movement. In WWII it was used by the Ministry of Information as a venue for press conferences held by Winston Churchill and his ministers. Also it was used as a registry office until 1979, and many famous people married there including Elizabeth Taylor, Diana Dors, Peter Sellers, George Harrison and Ringo Starr. It is now being redeveloped as apartments and offices.
