The tour takes you above the first floor, to the meeting rooms, council chambers, rotunda, robing room and other non public areas. The tour guides add insight and detail to city hall. If you visit this the way to go.

What a beautiful place to visit. Lots of history. Great that this is free to visit. Our guide was clear to hear. She spoke loud and clear , which was great as we have difficulty under standing the Irish accent.A must visit in Belfast

The City Hall is a magnificent building and a visit to take the 1 hour free tour should not be missed. Tours run on most days and there will be 4 or 5 to choose from. I took one at 10am on a Monday which seemed quieter than the one which followed so we probably got more from the guide.... More

Free tours are available at 11.00am, 2.00pm and 3.00pm and the architecture is stunning; too good to work in! Outside there's plenty of grassland to sit and eat your picnics although this marks the attraction down as it can be noisy and some litter is left behind.

It's a landmark structure, of course, to begin with. We took a (free) tour. There was so much history there. The tour guide just spent extra time telling us the stories of many things. It was a wonderful experience. The tour lasts about an hour. Excellent, highly recommended.
