The building is beautiful and I was able to sit in a city council meeting that was taking place. In addition to welcoming visitors, I was offered tea and cake in the visitors stand.

A great selection of food and crafts from around the world. Out of many Christmas markets I have seen this is one of the best. In front of the gorgeous town hall and all lit up really puts you in the festive spirit.

Went to the free city hall tour and had a wonderful experience. Beautifully designed and very well maintained. The tour guide was brilliant and very funny. It took about an hour and a half but well spent. Would definitely recommend to people.

Went to City Hall for the markets and they did not disappoint. A wide variety of markets to explore. Worth coming to Belfast for them alone.

A beautiful building in the centre of Belfast, really nicely lit up with the Christmas lights and worth a visit, was there with the Christmas markets which was great, but remember the locals in the shops nearby who has high rates and have to make ends meet when the markets are here as well as when they go

The staff was outstanding. We had missed the tour, and explained that we had met a former mayor's father and had described the paintings that the mayors had commissioned. One staff member was kind enough to take us up to see the paintings. The building is impressive

City Hall is a beautiful building anyway, but with the Christmas tree inside and the lights decorating the outside it looked amazing. The café is well worth a visit too.

I am a regular visitor to the City Hall in Belfast - though by that I don't mean weekly or monthly. I go as a volunteer and that's because the City Hall is regularly chosen as the venue for presentations and treats for those who give of their time freely. It is a beautiful building and whilst many are interest... More
