Manchester Town Hall

It's in the central area of Manchester and if you're visisting this city for the first time it's a good place to visit. During the christmass a really beautiful fair happens there!

Built in 1877 (or finished), this neo-gothic Town Hall its a beautiful building its the center of many government agencies and offices. Its a massive building, that seems to be crowded all the time, but that in terms of architecture has lots to offer. By far, one of the most picturesque building in the entire UK and a nice place...

Manchester Town Hall is full of workers! I have been to work meeting at the town hall. Making the time to enjoy the beauty of this wonderful building, and reading about its history is a must.

We visited as part of Manchester Day. It is a splendid Victorian Gothic building - dark corridors and extraordinary architecture. At the time it was full of people playing silly games - great fun! I think Parliament could fit in here!

The concierge (Phil??) was extremely helpful and gave us a pass so we could go and have a look at the Ford Maddox Brown murals in the Great Hall. Absolutely magnificent! We had a little look around the rest of the roms on that floor and they did not disappoint. The town hall is beautifully preserved and a glimpse into... More

Manchester Town Hall is 1 of the most majestic buildings in the City of Manchester. There aren't many castles or palaces in the city so the Town Hall is probably the most regal building you will find in the city. Sadly, on the day we were at Manchester Town Hall, there was a sit in protest going on and we... More
