Manchester Town Hall, Manchester

4.5
Manchester Town Hall is considered one of the best examples of Gothic revival architecture in the world. The ominous walls have seen many a mayor pass under their stone and stained glass. Names of the mayors who have taken office since 1838 are inscribed on the skylight in the landing. Look down at the mosaic floor depicting cotton flowers visited by bees. The Great Hall is decorated with the Manchester Murals, which illustrate the city's history. The building's most recognizable feature is the Great Abel clock tower, rising over 87 m (285 ft) above the rooftops.

  • One of my favourite place in England. It’s really nice and beautiful building. You should check it out. Grab a cup of coffee and just sit on the beach a front of the hall and just relax. Your day will be good. I strongly recommend you this Town hall! Have a lovely day
  • Very beautiful land mark. Unfortunately the day I went visited it there were a lot of construction and renovation in the area. Lovely people and restaurants in the surroundings. I highly recommend visiting it during the holiday seasons
