For sixty-four years, County Hall served as the headquarters for the metropolitan government of London. Its interior was crafted from the finest materials in order to uphold an unwavering sense of decorum while maintaining a design that would ensure swift and efficient administration. However, in 1986, the abolition of the Greater London Council left the magnificent building redundant. Over the following years, County Hall’s purpose was changed and put up for debate many times, its proud facade and well-crafted layout proving to be a valuable asset across a range of uses.
In 1992, the building was finally acquired by new investors and the site underwent further redevelopments, with construction of the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge hotel reaching completion in 2010 among other changes to the expansive venue. County Hall is now home to a number of specialist restaurants, event spaces and highly popular family attractions.
