This six-storey, neo-Georgian landmark building was opened in 1941 and began television broadcasts with the 1953 Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. Pop into the foyer and grab some free postcards featuring our local 'slebs'. The Thomas Thompson Memorial Fountain stands in the traffic island outside the main entrance and is dedicated to an eminent local surgeon and founder of the Charitable Home for the Incurable. The fountain was built to provide fresh drinking water for the influx of refugees during the Great Famine.
