“A Surprise Treasure”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

The tour was recommended by a member of staff at the hotel where we were staying. We didn't book and just turned up about 15 minutes before the tour. Our guide was informative and friendly and she had one of us to model a councillors robes. The tour gave a real insight into both the history and the present life of the city. I can't believe it was all free. Fascinating. Don't miss the exhibition at the end which will give you a good background into many aspects of the history of Northern Ireland and its complicated attitudes.

“Wonderful building”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

The tour guide was knowledgeable and the tour was most enjoyable. It was interesting to find out some of the history of the City Hall, the political make-up and the characters involved

“What a surprise”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

The city hall is generally open to the public and has a coffee shop, but I suggest you do the tour of this most interesting building. Italian marble has been used throughout the first floor and the main staircase is wonderful.
