City Hall, Belfast

4.6
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. Put City Hall into our Belfast planning website and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • 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.

  • I would recommend that everyone visiting Belfast take a tour of this wonderful building. We visited as a group and had Karena as our tour guide, she was so enthusiastic, passionate and informative about the City Hall that we could have listened to her for hours. We also walked around the exhibition which was also great. Thank you so much Karena.
  • This is a great place to chill out on summer, and on winter there will be a Christmas market which is fantastic and offer an excellent variety of food and goods. The place itself is really clean and well-maintained. It is just a few minutes of walk away from various fast food shops or restaurants (including some shopping centres like Castle Court or Victoria Square), so you don't have to worry about being hungry. There are also a lot of bus stops surrounding the city hall which will go to various parts of Belfast, so this place is a great place to start your journey!
  • An interesting building with very grand design, it is worth the free tour if you want to know more about its history and you get to see it's very impressive marble architecture and artwork upstairs.
  • Free guided tour is so great that you can learn a lot of Belfast history here! Our tour guide Christopher is really friendly and willing to answer any question you may have. It's also a good chance to visit some restricted area, such as banqueting room, council room, etc. Really interesting place for tourists!
  • Such a beautiful building. The free tour is so interesting and its a great way to see rooms you normally can't see. I'll be back!
