If you have some time to kill in Manchester I would recommend visiting the Town Hall, especially if you are in to architecture. I ended up here when the Christmas markets were on to pass some time and they had a few stalls set up inside and I had some lovely food inside. There is plenty to look at inside... More

A beautiful building with a lot of history. Of note is the mosaic ceiling in a number of the 1st floor rooms.

A beautiful gothic building. Try to make enough time to view it at a leisurely pace. The architecture is stunning, and the cafe is nice too.

Magnificent arches with decorated ceilings. Beautiful stained glass windows and stone staircases. But check if you want to visit murals as the great hall is frequently used for conferences, therefore no public access. Very helpful gentleman on reception. Cakes in cafe looked scrumptious but sadly we didn't sample having parked nearby in possibly the most expensive car park in the... More

What an amazing building--Victorian excess to its most excessive--a whole city block in size and a great symbol of the wealth and power this city once had. Inside the Great Hall is a series of colorful, sometimes hilarious, sometimes awful but unforgettable murals depicting the history of Manchester by Ford Madox Brown.
