Town Hall

Barnsley Town Hall is the home of Barnsley council. Only a few offices are now based here, along with meeting and reception rooms. This famous local landmark dates from 1933 and is a popular venue for weddings. It has a cafe, and the landscaped fountain areas outside make a great place to meet and relax.  

The town hall is also home to Experience Barnsley museum and the Barnsley archives, where you can find out more about its past.

The building is historic, but has level access and changing places facilities. You can find out more about Town Hall accessibility on Disabled Go. There's a range of parking in the town centre.

Flag flying at the town hall

Our town hall is a UK government building and we follow government guidance on when we should fly the Union Flag.

The building has three flag poles. The main flagpole on the top of the clock tower is for flying the Union Flag or St George’s Cross only.

The other flag poles are on the top of the main building at either side of the tower. These are used to fly the flag for special events such as the Armed Forces Day or Yorkshire Day when the Barnsley flag is also flown.

We also have our own special days for flying the flag. We’ll tell you about these on our social media channels.
