“The City Hall Belfast Is Definitely Worth A Visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

More tourists visit the City Hall than locals and in many ways that is a huge shame. Inside you will find a beautiful building and tours are available at certain times.
This is where Belfast City Council are based and it is fascinating to see inside a working council chamber. The Christmas market was set up there just recently outside in the main grounds. Also in the main grounds you will find some impressive looking statues, various memorials and plaques that tell the history of the City

“Wonderful Building”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

The Christmas Market was in the square which was lovely. We went into the City Hall to use the toilets and what we saw on the ground floor was beautiful. It looked as if they did guided tours for free, unfortunately we didn't have time to join one. If we return we shall certainly look in to seeing more of it.

The christmas feeling in this place is amazing! The tree inside was stunning and the Christmas market was in the grounds just to top it off. In the Christmas mood now!

“Well worth looking at.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2013

This beautiful building is 'must do' when you are in Belfast and this is a particularly nice time of year with the Christmas Market being on in the grounds - when you get chilly pop inside for a real treat. Fantastic Christmas tree is the first thing to greet you and the architecture is amazing. Plan to go again soon and not miss the tour.

“Worth popping in even if there is no tour on.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2013

Spend half an hour looking round the Central Hall and admire the architecture and stained glass. Some cases display historical artefacts including a charter signed by James I.
