Built on an open arcade of 4 round-headed arches on the north and south, 2 similar arches on the east and 3 on the west, of which the west arches, the westernmost arch of the south front and all but the easternmost arch of the north front have been filled in. Brick stringcourse above the arcade. The windows on the 1st floor have segmental heads and glazing bars intact. Brick modillion cornice, and parapet. Brick chimneys were added at the angles in 1853, which have not improved the proportions. The roof is flat.

The lantern narrows as it rises and is surmounted by 4 clock faces with a wooden cupola above having a leaden dome containing bells, on top of which is a ball cap and a weather-
vane.
Inside the Town Hall, at the east end, stands a red, K6-type telephone kiosk, this type designed 1935 by Sir Giles gilbert Scott. The kiosk was made by the Carron Company, is of cast iron, square on plan with domed roof and has unperforated George VI crowns to top panels and margin glazing to windows and door/telephone number Reigate 242520.
