Owner description: Inaugurated by Queen Victoria in 1888, Glasgow City Chambers dominates George Square and is currently home to Glasgow City Council. The grand marble staircase and banqueting hall are among the building's many highlights. Free guided tours are conducted at 10:30am and 2:30pm on weekdays except public holidays and special events.

Glasgow's signature building. It looks like something straight out of a Victorian fantasy totally dominating George Square. It is especially lovely in the late afternoon sun. George Square as well is a nice place to just hang out and people watch. It really reminds one of Glasgow's heyday as very rich city in the UK and Europe.

The outside is lovely, and the two staircases are brilliant (and made for great photos.) We did the free tour just to pass the time and were very pleased that we did.

I loved the marble - everywhere you look it's there; pillars, staircases, walls. It really isn't like Scotland-more like Italy, a palace. The guides are knowledgeable and helpful, and you can take many photos. You can even sit on the "throne" in the debating chamber! See where the the local counsellors have their splendid offices, admire the paintings of former Lord Provosts, find the hidden"pictures" in the marble veining. A grand trip for those who like opulence and would like to know more about Glasgow's great interior architecture.

Looks good from the outside which is all i saw. Its right on a nice square which is great people watching etc.. The square is worth more the visit than the city hall in my opinion
