Opened in 1866, this is quite an impressive old building but sadly its tower ,named after Prince Albert, the guy with Queen Vic, and sadly, the reason for the lower review is shorter than the tower of the GPO over the road named after Queen Victoria. How devastating for Albert. Fortunately the GPO did not host the Beatles in 1964 so Albert had his day. The visit did not allow a look-see inside but all fun aside it is an impressive building and yes, it deserves a higher rating.

Fabulous old Town Hall previously visited by The Queen of England, Prince Charles and The Beatles. Doesn’t look much from outside but incredible decor inside. It’s free...just say Hi to security.
A fabulous main hall awaits with original seating and magnificent organ. Other blue reception room is stunning. Lots of history on the walls in photos, cuttings etc.
Well worth a visit. Would have loved to attended a concert in main hall...must be awesome!

I understand this building has historical links to the Past - Edmund Wright winning the design competition. That just adds another another layer of interest to the many established and stately buildings in this part of town.

Adelaide would have some of the best old buildings in the country, either than or they look after them better than most cities. The architecture is amazing and one lovely building after another as you walk around the city.

Walked past on the self guided tour of the Adelaide CBD. Looks wonderful at night and has a number of restaurants in and around it. I must revisit to try.

Adelaide Town Hall is a heritage-listed building. It’s one of the greatest acoustic venues for symphonic concerts in Australia. So it’s the primary venue for Adelaide Symphony Orchestra. By seeing the colourfully illuminated stage, my Japanese friends wished to go to a concert. Unfortunately, however, nothing was scheduled during their visit to Adelaide.

If you are passing by the Town Hall it is certainly worth going inside and having a look around. The beautiful staircases are wide and inviting. The Auditorium is just stunning. The ceiling is beautiful. They don't make public buildings like these anymore. The Auditorium is huge. I have just been to a conference there and there were approximately 1,000 people that attended. It also has the balcony seating upstairs. I just love these buildings. Simply stunning.

Saw the Australian Doctors Orchestra there and it sounded great. Good to visit and find out about South Australian history.

The Adelaide Town Hall was hailed as 'the largest municipal building south of the Equator' when it opened in 1866 and is still an impressive building today.

I took advantage of a free, one hour tour offered by the Adelaide Town Hall. Our tour guide Glen was absolutely wonderful, full of interesting information and with a great depth of knowledge about the Adelaide Town Hall and the broader history of the city of Adelaide. Glen told us he has been running tours of the Adelaide Town Hall for 22 years and his passion for the building and Adelaide in general was contagious.

The tour took us through many different rooms within the building and Glen provided a fantastic narrative covering a broad range of topics including the life and legacy of Queen Adelaide as well as a detailed biography of Colonel William Light and his enormous contribution to the city of Adelaide and the state of South Australia.

This was an hour very well spent and I would recommend this tour to locals and tourists alike.

I enjoyed my visit to the Town Hall, as I entered the building I want up to the counter and asked could I look around and take a few photos and I told it was OK, just same parts were closed to for the public. As I walked up the stairs a nice gentleman told me to go around the corner and walk through the door to a room that had a beautiful organ. I was impressed by it, also the ceiling they also had same craft on display in the hallway which was nice, all in all the building is lovely.
