There's a free tour that takes you around the city hall. Although I was living in Belfast at the time I had a few hours to kill and went on it. Really enjoyed it. I have to say the debating chamber was worth getting to...More

City Hall was magnificent both outside and inside, however, one had to pay to tour the upstairs section of the building.

We just missed the tour but the exhibits are well laid out and it is very interesting and informative. Impressive building externally, a real focal point of Belfast and some lovely details internally, like the stained glass windows.
