The Harrington Room accommodates up to 10 people (the couple and up to 8 guests) and ceremonies performed in this room are simple and elegant.

Chelsea Old Town Hall is undergoing a full refurbishment from 20 August 2018 until 31 March 2019, therefore we are only taking bookings for the Harrington Room from 1 April onwards. If you are considering a ceremony between 20 August 2018 until 31 March 2019, we recommend the Committee Room or the Mayor’s Parlour which are both at Kensington Town Hall.

If you choose The Harrington Room as your venue you will be able to enhance your marriage or civil partnership and include one reading and two pieces of music as part of your ceremony.

Days of the week Time

It does not include marriage certificates which are £4 each (prior to your ceremony) or £10 each (after your ceremony). Certificates can be paid for at £4 when you pay your ceremony attendance fee.
