Dover Town Hall, Maison Dieu - old print, probably early 1800s.Postcard of 1904 showing Dover Town Hall and tram


Dover’s 800-year old Maison Dieu, also known as Dover Town Hall has been upgraded from a Grade II* to a Grade I listing by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS). New research has revealed that the building is far more important than anyone suspected due largely to hidden decorative work by the flamboyant Victorian architect William Burges (1827-1881), the full extent of which has only recently been discovered.
