Postcard of Hove Town Hall, c1904.
The original Hove Town Hall was designed by Alfred Waterhouse in a style known as Victorian Gothic. This was a revival of a medieval style of architecture that can also be seen in the Natural History Museum in London, another building designed by Waterhouse.
Hove Town Hall opened on 13 December 1882. It cost £50,000 to construct, and featured a 30 metre high clock tower with four clock faces and twelve bells.
The building was destroyed by a fire in 1966. It was replaced by a new town hall that opened in 1974.
