“Town hall dominates Albert Square and the neo Gothic architecture will stop you in your tracks! Wow factor!”
Reviewed October 14, 2013 via mobile

This amazing building is well worth a visit to drink in the amazing architecture by walking the corridors and feasting your eyes on the sculptures and wood panelled rooms. The sculpture hall tea rooms is well worth a visit to enjoy the tranquillity and ambience created by clever lighting and superb layout.
