So pleased we did this fab free tour of the beautiful city hall, the beautiful building dominates the top of one of the main shopping streets and also has the memorial garden to all the passengers who lost their lives on the Titanic which was very moving to read all the names. Inside the city hall is stunning with so... More

Spectacular building. There are a few tours per day (free) so check when they are and turn up for one. The excellent tour brings to life what might otherwise be rather dry and gives access to key rooms that you wouldn't see otherwise. Its a working building, so not all rooms may be accessible even on the tour.

This appears to be the busiest area of Belfast. I was dropped off outside and there were lots of people in the gardens taking photos. There are interesting statues and a Titanic Memorial Garden in the grounds. Well worth a look. I called in because I needed the toilet and the building is as good on the inside as it... More

Service quite reluctant and quality of food unimaginative. We would prefer a more professionally orientated location, such as Deane's Restaurant in nearby Howard Street.

My wife and I eat in the Bobbin Room from time to time when we visit Belfast for concerts in the Ulster Hall or on shopping trips to the Markets. The cafe can get busy but the food is good and the service is usually quick. The City Hall is a great piece of architecture and well worth a visit... More

Amazingly beautiful. Great arches, grand intricate designs, huge domes and gigantic pillars. Hope that describes the scale of this monument. Don't believe in others words , just go and have a look. It's really beautiful. . You'll love it. There are free art exhibitions in the campus so you can enjoy some good paintings as well .

What a glorious building! You need to see it for yourself. Victorian architecture but in the classical style.
