Manchester Town Hall is impressive from the outside with fine architecture. However, the only part open to the public is the enquiries section main entrance.
What we did see was again fine interior architecture and we plan to go to the next public open day

One of the biggest Christmas markets in Europe in every December. The venue is great to meet friends who will have a beer and sausage.

I went to the toen hall in differrnt occasions, to attend events but there is nothing better than to go for a coffee during he Christmas season, where the tree is up and can create a magical feeling and taking you back in time with the small of old wood.

Stunning building in the heart of Manchester, large square infront of the town hall that usually has fairs or concerts. Look past the security barriers that surround it an just admire it's beauty.

This is one of the great municipal buildings in the UK, once the highest edifice in Manchester and visible from miles around. In some cities, the cathedral dominates the urban landscape; in Manchester - Cottonopolis, the first modern city - it is this splendid neo-Gothic structure that dwarfs the cathedral. Seek out especially the Manchester Murals in the Great Hall, the work of Ford Madox Brown,
