The Oxford Town Hall

In the centre of Oxford, next to the world famous Christ Church College, and just a stone's throw from the iconic Radcliffe Camera, lies The Oxford Town Hall. The Smashing Conference will be held in the beautiful Main Hall; an amazing example of the Victorian Gothic Revival style.

We think you'll be blown away. From the amazing plasterwork and vaulted ceilings, to the enormous pipe organ and the chandeliers, you're in for a treat!

Historic Town Hall Rooms

Apart from the main Oxford Town Hall, we've reserved a couple of exquisite workshop rooms in the very same building for the full-day workshops. Have you ever studied responsive design in a clerks room, or front-end in a court room, or perhaps UX in a judge's room? Well, surrounded by beautiful historic paintings and architecture, the workshops will be quite an experience.

When entering the building, search for the large "Workshop" sign and follow the directions. Of course you'll receive an email with detailed instructions way ahead of time.
