This beautiful building has a walk through historical accounting of Belfast. There are stained glass windows on the main floor depicting historical figures of Belfast. A surprising treat in the city center. Fee is voluntary donation and it's worth a visit.

I would recommend booking a place on the free guided tour (they have hourly slots) to hear the history and stories around the building and contents of this magnificent building. It's well worth an hour out of your day.

Our group had a fantastic party in the Grand Hall. The building is an architectural masterpiece. It is all marble and soaring vaulted ceilings and domes. This is truly the centerpiece of Belfast.

The City Hall is a beautiful building and has a free exhibition which includes the Troubles. It is definitely worth going to see. We ate in the cafe too
