An eyepopping building, lined in marble and shining wood, real Glasgow over statement. Worth seeing. Knocks Edinburgh's City Chambers into oblivion.

Turned up with partners family. Surprise visit and had a fantastic tour. The tour was packed with foreigners and was very informative. Had tours of various rooms and each were as stunning as one another. What a beautiful building, especially loved the banqueting hall. Wow Glasgow's best kept secret. A must for anyone visiting the city. And best part is that the tour is daily and free !!!

I regularly pass the City Chambers on my way to work and when I was studying there.

I decided to book a tour with some friends and I was completeley amazed at the building both inside and out. I'm not one for art or architecture but the inside is truly stunning. Marble floors, high ceilings and all maintained to an excellent standard. I would reccommend a visit if you haven't yet been, or even just pop in for a look!
