The outside was very pretty and a lovely place to sit. Also, the free guided tour was very well presented and gave a good impression of the building. The museum was also interesting and had lots about the history of Belfast.

There is so much to see in this building especially the stained glass windows. The grounds are well kept and there is also two Titanic memorials on the grounds as well. Well worth the visit.

I love the city hall so much that it has a few guides in a day. I strongly recommend you to book the guide free at the reception and you can visit some mysterious places that others can't go. The guide is really knowledgeable and...More
