The elegant Walmer Castle and Gardens is nearby, which is the official residence of the ‘Lords Warden of the Cinque Ports'. The Gardens at Walmer Castle are fondly named the Queen Mother's Garden, because Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother made regular visits here.

Venue History: On March 15 1803 the Mayor, Isaac Gammon, along with the Jurats and members of the Common Council, attended a ceremony for the laying of the first stone of the new town hall and market place. The outside pillared area at ground level was to provide an area for a market place. The building has been used as the Town’s Court (including cells), as well as a fire station. Horses were used to pull the firemen’s equipment, the horses troth can still be seen at the front of the building. Each Mayor since 1699 is etched in gold around the Chamber.

Wedding Trivia:
WHITE WEDDING DRESS AS TRADITION
The tradition for the bride to wear white began in the 16th century and is still commonly followed today. This is a symbol of the bride's purity and her worthiness of her groom. The tradition became solidified during the time of Queen Victoria who rebelled against the royal tradition for Royal brides to wear silver. Instead, the queen preferred the symbolism, which is expressed by wearing white. The brides of the time quickly emulated the queen, and the tradition has continued in full force to this day.
