The building is amazing and i would have missed some of the architectural detail had i just wandered through, but didn't need the guide taking lots of time for everyone (who wanted to) to sit in the Lord Mayor's chair and have their picture taken.

This building must be the highlight of the town for architecture and it is so well maintained. The café is good on the ground floor and the stained glass windows near to it are magnificent. Come not only in the daytime but at night when it is floodlit
