The Charter Gallery is filled with Kingston’s most important charters; paintings by local artists and photographs of the previous Mayors of the Royal Borough, which date back to 1835.
The wrought-iron banisters on the staircase depict various heraldic scenes, representing the reigns of the seven Saxon Kings crowned in Kingston. These events are also commemorated by the nearby Coronation Stone. This is also a perfect location for taking photographs and is a beautiful alternative area for welcoming your guests.
Facts and Figures
The Charter Gallery is an informal space,
and acts as an anteroom to the main Council Chamber or Queen Anne Suite. It provides a bright, flexible space for your guests to visit throughout your time with us, and gives them a hint of the history of both the Guildhall and Kingston-Upon-Thames itself.
