The beautiful historic icon of the City Council

Donegall Square, Belfast, Antrim BT1 5GS
The City Hall is illuminated at night with various colored lights bringing out the best of the architecture marvels of this historic building. Recommend to have a look at it and get some photos during a night stroll.

Located in the heart of Belfast City is majestic historic building of the City Hall. Opened to public in 1906, the grand building was designed by Architect Sir Alfred Brumwell Thomas in Portland stone in Baroque Revival style.


Today, the City Hall houses the Belfast City Council offices. What interests the tourists here is the strong connection of the City Hall with the iconic ship Titanic. There is a Titanic Memorial Garden on the east side of the City Hall. It houses the Titanic Memorial which inscribes the names of the lost souls from Belfast on RMS Titanic which met its untimely deadly fate on 15th April 1912 on its maiden voyage.


There are free public tours of the grounds and gardens of the City Hall on each day at a particular timing. If you are in Belfast you cannot miss sighting the grand building and a short visit inside is highly recommended

How to get there

The City Hall is in the center of the Belfast City. It is surrounded by shops, eateries and the Belfast Visitor Center is directly opposite to it. A walking tour of the city will take you there. I would say all roads in Belfast lead to the City Hall, so you will keep hitting on it wherever you go in Belfast.
