City Hall, Belfast

4.6
#4 of 265 in Things to do in Belfast
The central location and gardens of City Hall attract workers on their lunch breaks, as well as students seeking a patch of green between classes. The gardens are full of statues and memorials commemorating various historical figures and events, including a statue of Queen Victoria, a granite column paying homage to the American Expeditionary Force, and a Titanic memorial. The building itself still operates, so much of it is closed off to the public, but the facade is worth a photo. Take a stroll through the gardens, or join the ranks on the benches with your lunch.

    You can see climbing them that the Builder of the Titanic decided to plagiarize for the ship, see the ayutamiento room and make a photo in the Mayor's Chair. They explain a little history of the city hall and totally free.

  • Great centre piece to a great city absolutely steeped in history. The free tour is an excellent experience well worth doing. You get inside the chambers of a working City Hall.
  • Worth to visit,I was like mind blowing,speech less to see the buildings, statues.. such a wonderful architect.. Belfast is a well organized city..very friendly people..a must visit place in a lifetime.. especially those who gets attract towards monuments like me 🤗 Spread joy..cheers!!
  • Beautiful government building. The stained glass windows inside are very cool--nice outline of the history of Belfast.
  • Beautiful building. Nice wee cafe, too. On a sunny day, the grounds are awash with people - always a great atmosphere. And if it's cold and miserable out? Go take a tour of City Hall. Definitely worthwhile.
  • It was nice. Nowadays overwhelmed with loud youngsters. :D
