Colchester Town Hall was built from 1898 and the building was opened by Prime Minister Lord Rosebery in May 1902.

The Town Hall Architect John Belcher extensively used sculptures and artworks throughout the building. The spectacular Italian marble staircase dominates the hall. The entrance alone offers an inviting reception for all types of occasions and there are outstanding function rooms still used for their original purpose.

Colchester Town Hall has stood on the same site since the 12th century. The 162-foot clock tower was presented by James Paxman; it is topped by a figure of St Helena, patron Saint of the City.

As the oldest recorded Roman town in Britain, Colchester is claimed to be the oldest town in Britain on the grounds that it was mentioned by Pliny the Elder, who died in AD 79.

Staff at the Town Hall have heard doors slam in the basements (these used to be holding cells) and the Security staff have heard loud footsteps and seeing a little girl running on the first floor when they have been locking up.

The Brook Red Lion Hotel in Colchester, Essex is a historical Grade I listed building dating back to 1465. Located in the busy town centre of Colchester, Britain's oldest recorded town, The Brook Red Lion Hotel in Colchester is one of the oldest inns in the area.

The Parliament Restaurant at the Red Lion Hotel was once the old Banqueting Hall, still showing its timbered beams.

There are three known ghosts - a small boy that can be seen in the Parliament restaurant occassionally and has appeared in a guest's photograph, a ghostly monk that hangs around in reception, but the most active is Alice Millar.
Alice was a chambermaid at the hotel and was killed by a lover.
Alice has regularly been heard whispering and even talking to staff. There are recent accounts of people's hair being pulled and a womans voice appearing on a video taken in one of the rooms, with no obvious cause.

The original rooms still have their original wattle and daub beams. They are also, obviously, the most haunted.
