Acton - Acton Town Hall Centre

Explore the Italianate splendour in the heart of Acton – in this refurbished 19th-century town hall, complete with original bell tower and modern addition. This grand building hosted council meetings of the town fathers, rocked with Saturday night dance parties, and jailed delinquents in its cold, dark cell. An exhibition of work by local artist Ann Hamilton will be on display.
