Booked a tour lasting about one hour. Well informed guide and a fascinating building with lots of history in its relatively short existence.

This was an amazing place to visit. If you love government and history this if perfect! It was absolutely beautiful! If you are lucky, you might even get to meet the Lord Mayor!

It is really worth a visit, an hour-long tour and free of charge. Nice building and a beautiful piece of history. Visitors have the chance to sit in the mayor's hundred-year-old chair and one visitor even can try on the mayor's special gown.

Very much an old style building. Quite iconic and we'll worth a visit. Belfast is such a small city and this is one of the main sights.

Starting on the outside with the monuments to the titanic and the pictures of the Somme were breathtaking. The huge tv on the lawn. Inside was beautiful and filled with history

Great to have the opportunity to see round this impressive building for free and learn more about the Belfast administrative system. The tour guide knew her stuff but was the least smiley person I saw in Belfast all weekend. Tour group was possibly a bit too large. Stained glass windows in foyer were my favourite. Bobbin cafe also very good... More
