In light of the current situation Rochdale Town Hall is closed. It will reopen on government advice when safe to do so. Tours are currently unavailable while the town hall is closed, and will be unavailable again from 1 January 2021 so we can renovate the building. We expect tours to start again in 2023.


Rochdale's fabulous Grade-I Victorian Gothic town hall is renowned worldwide for its unique and detailed architecture.

Join us on an expertly guided tour and marvel at the wonderful craftsmanship, immerse yourself in the building’s history and take a look inside the Mayor’s Parlour.

You can choose a full tour of the town hall or a short tour where we'll take you around the best bits of the building. We also offer these tours as public or private.

  • Public tours are open to anyone to join at the set time.
  • Private tours are for groups of 8 or more to enjoy together at a time that suits you.

For more details about these tours, choose the sections on the tabs above.
