Wandsworth takes its name from the River Wandle, which enters the Thames at Wandsworth. Wandsworth appears in Domesday Book of 1086 as Wandesorde and Wendelesorde. This means 'enclosure of (a man named) Waendel', whose name is also lent to the River Wandle. To distinguish it from the London Borough of Wandsworth, and historically from the Wandsworth District of the Metropolis and the Metropolitan Borough of Wandsworth, which all covered larger areas, it is also known as Wandsworth Town.
This is the civic hall attached to the Town Hall. The Civic Suite can accommodate the largest of ceremonies in the banqueting hall which can cope with up to 600 guests. At the other extreme the Mayor's Robing Room is for the smaller event with up to 30 guests.
