We spent over an hour looking at the city hall and found the experience educational. I especially enjoyed the room of reflection. We had a coffee at the cafeteria which was pleasant also

The tour is just 45 minutes long and the guide has a great sense of humour! It's filled with historical facts about the building and Belfast in general.
