The exhibition in the City Hall was impressive. It's free and not crowded. The interior design and the external walls offer plenty of artistic photos. Great for tourists to understand better about the history of Belfast.

Well worth a visit! Really interesting exhibition, liked the mix of personal stories on trade unionists, political and civic leaders and the Reflection Space. As a curator I can’t help but worry about those documents and robes in-front of a window. No blinds and film...More

Lot of people might not take this as it’s a free tour. However that’s the beauty of this. The tour takes you to the top floor (otherwise restricted) and through several rooms which again gives insight of this historical city.

Cant believe that this is City Hall. Very impressive building, with marble columns, dome ceiling and stained glass. Glad we stopped by but didn't have time for the guided tour.

I was fascinated by the architecture and stained glass at City Hall. I heard they gave free tours and I love free things so I thought why not. The tour was great. It lasted about 40 min and took us to parts of the building...More
