One of Marylebone’s most iconic buildings, the Old Town Hall, is to undergo £50 million worth of redevelopment following a lease agreement signed between Westminster City Council and London Business School.
First opened in 1920, Marylebone’s Old Town Hall is a Grade II listed building, famous for its classic architecture. The building is also home to the London Register Office and has seen many famous names exchange vows within its walls – including Beatles Sir Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, Liam Gallagher and Claudia Winkleman.
However, the news plans announced by Westminster City Council mean that the building will not host any weddings for three years as the redevelopment work takes place. The building is expected to undergo a series of modernisations whilst maintaining the traditional elements the building is most famous for.
Once the work is completed, Marylebone Old Town Hall will make up part of London Business School’s Regent’s Park campus whilst again becoming a venue for ceremonial functions it is best known for as well as local council meetings.
