Our 80-year-old town hall is temporarily closing for three years from Friday 31 August as part of a refurbishment project to modernise the building.

From this summer, all services at the town hall will move whilst essential refurbishment work takes place. The major refit will improve the building’s sustainability and environmental performance, reduce long-term running costs and transform the way some of the space is used. During the works, services will move to the below locations:

From Monday 13 August: Crowndale Centre, 218 Eversholt Street, NW1 1BD

• birth registrations

• death registrations

• duplicate certificate applications
