Hard to believe that that there were plans to demolish this in the post war clean up! phew! stunning building, payed for by a collective of philanthropists from the industrial revolution era. Currently closed for refurbishment to prevent a bill as big as parliaments. I am lucky enough to go to meetings in the boardroom and have also attended concerts and wedding here. When it re opens it is definitely worth a visit, tours take you up to the clock tower and the windows, tiling, carvings etc etc are just stunning. On the ground floor is a cafe serving afternoon teas as well as the usual cafe fare.
