This beautiful old building and landmark is in a terrible condition. It should be repaired before it collapses and is lost forever. Georgetown does not have innumerable notable sights - St George's Cathedral (also in a state of decay), the Queen Victoria Law Courts, Parliament Buildings, the Public Library and this Town Hall and these are all precious to the nation. Other Caribbean countries do not have such buildings and these are unique and a tourist attraction. The Town Hall should be repaired using greenheart which would last for a long time.

Very beautiful building, but in a desperate need of repair.
Not so big, but very impressive architecture.

Like a lot of public buildings in Georgetown, City Hall is in desperate need of restoration. Undoubtedly funds are short, but a little bit of ongoing maintenance would have prevented the building deteriating to this extent.

Well worth a short visit.

If this building was maintained it would have been one of the most beautiful in Georgetown. Sadly Local Government has been an absolute failure and as such the building seems to be one of the many causalities.

Hopefully it can one day be restored to its glory.

A visit here in July 2017 will give you a crystal clear understanding of the state of Guyana. One of the most beautiful buildings just allowed to decay and collapse under the watchful eye of the elected mayor, who's offices are housed in the building. Not even baby steps are taken to halt the decay.

The "Georgetown City Hall "is a very beautiful building which was built during the British rule but sadly today,because of very poor maintenance,it's a shadow of its former glorious past.

The City Hall with its tower, spire, turrets, columns is a fanciful piece of gothic architecture and definitely one of the most attractive buildings in Georgetown. Unfortunately it is also in a state of disrepair and apparently closed. Although included in the tentative list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites funds to have it restored don't seem to be around.

It is a timber building, except for the cast iron columns and the tiles of the steep roof. Its opening was in 1889. Next to it comes another attractive timber house and then the High Court, which opened two years earlier. This building, with a marble statue of Queen Victoria in front, still gets used as such and has obviously been restored.

This is a wonderful building in desperate need of repair. Help is at hand from the EU (British Brexiteers take note!). The windows, metalwork and design all go to the naking of a wonderful build8ng. Bring on is renovation.

One of the most beautiful buildings in Georgetown. Sadly in need of restoration which will apparently be done by the British next year.
