The front of Dover's Town Hall in Biggin Street.

This historic building contains: Stone Hall, Connaught Hall, the Council Chamber and the Mayor's Parlour.

The Zeebrugge Bell (commemorating Admiral Roger Keyes' 1918 raid on Zeebrugge, Belgium) is under the housing directly below the lefthand side of the clock.

A satellite view of the Town Hall.
