The Oak Room on the ground floor can be hired for weddings, meetings etc. For further information about these facilities please refer to the Thornborough Hall section of the website or contact the Town Council Office.

Kelberdale Terrace Public Toilets

These were taken over by the Town Council in 2012 to prevent their closure and were fully refurbished in summer 2012. They are located near to Towlers Newsagents, Market Place and are open daily. Any complaints or comments should be referred to the Town Council Office.

Market place, Commercial Square and Grove Square

Parking is permitted on these squares and we ask for a donation to be paid into the donation boxes located at the market shelter in the central Market Place and also next to the tree in Commercial Square. No HGVs or caravans are permitted on the squares and no overnight parking of campervans/caravans is permitted. We politely request that walkers use the pay and display car park located behind the Golden Lion so that the town centre parking spaces can be used by shoppers.
