Loved the historical artefacts, the windows, the quiet, the café/restaurant. The staff were helpful and knew their stuff. Plenty of seating for tired legs.

Took the tour of Belfast city hall on a wet autumn day. It is free! And the building is amazing. It is a step back in time to see the aspirations of a wealthy city's burgers telling the world who and what they were. Very elegant marble and terrazzo everywhere and a guide give an entertaining and informative pitted history... More

We so often forget about the beautiful paces that are right on our doorstep. Belfast City Hall is a stunning building rich in history. The guided tours are very informative and really bring the history of Belfast to life. Highly recommended.

A beautiful building. We looked round briefly at the lovely interior, short on time. Wish we could have spend a little more time there and did not do the free guided tour, but we did have lunch there in the restaurant, which was quite good value considering we were in the centre of the city.

The Belfast City Hall is a grand building just to visit, but you can sign up for a free guided tour which takes you into the various rooms and council chambers with the help of a very knowkedgable guide

We joined a tour of the building and were able to visit the Council Chambers and the inner areas including the robing room. We met the Lord Mayor! The quilt Exhibition was fascinating too.
