Not very much of the town hall was open when we visited - actually just a few yards after the main entrance, but it was still an interesting building.
Although there was no clue from the outside, there is a very smart tea room on the ground floor. It was a hot afternoon and, elsewhere in the city, the coffee bars were heaving. Here, in the gothic splendour of the town hall as a very comfortable tea room. Forget municipal café - think 5 star country house hotel! Loads of space between the tables and leather sofas. Elsewhere the air conditioning struggled to keep overcrowded coffee bars cool. Here it was naturally cool, due to the high ceilings, flagstones and dim lighting.
And it was cheap!
Obviously not many people know about this place - so go and have a very relaxing tea (or just a cup of tea or coffee).
