Must see and take the tour - history and charm and no protests. Right in the heart of the city and close to the bus stops that can ensure you can go anywhere for £3.40 on an all day ticket.

Stunning architecture and great tours. Anyone who comes to Belfast must visit the city hall. Everyone will love the place, even teenagers.

Take the city hall tour. You should check out the times and put your names down. They limit the numbers per tour. The outside of the building quite something BUT nothing compared to the inside. Absolutely beautiful, and loaded with history. The tour guides are excellent. Don't miss the city hall tour.

Great looking building, grassy areas for people to lie and relax, large to screen to look at mainly advertising Belfast events and venues. However, the daredevils of Belfast (druggies, crazies and drinkies) also enjoy the sunshine and the grass. But don't let that put you off, they're friendly enough, few between and keep to their own kind.

I regularly use The Bobbin cafe in the City Hall in Belfast. Great value, service and friendliness. There's always a good buzz. Highly recommend it to anyone who visits Belfast. There's the added bonus of free tours of the City Hall.

One of the highlights of the capital of Ulster. Really beautiful building inside and outside, free to visit and with the option of a guided tour.

Wish we'd had more time to have a proper look round, loads of history, fantastic stained glass windows. Would be well worth taking the guided tour.

This FREE tour needs to be pre-booked at the City Hall reception desk. It reveals the splendour of a bye-gone age and is the perfect compliment to a visit to the Titanic area. Ancient charter documents are shown and explained. The tour included an opportunity to sit in the Council Chamber and even sit in the Lord Mayor's chair. A... More
