This is a very impressive looking building in the centre of town, really stands out from some of its less spectacular neighbours. A grade 2 listed building, it's one of the towns highlights.

Lovely private ceremony, with great staff who were helpful and friendly at each stage. The rooms were beautiful and we had lots of time to take photographs afterwards.
