We walked by the town hall and would like to pay a visit. But there was some kind of function going on and my teenager daughter not interested. Good place for wedding.

There is lots to do in this lovely building and it's not just council offices. There are exhibitions, a small museum, shop and coffee shop within the town hall and it's worth a visit.
