The home of Belfast City Council, it was designed by Alfred Brumwell Thomas and built in Portland stone. Completed in 1906, it reflects Belfast’s city status, granted by Queen Victoria in 1888. The City Hall is one of the most important historical sites in Belfast.

The grounds of Belfast City Hall are packed with famous monuments and statues, detailing the history of both the building and Belfast. 

We thank Belfast City Council for their kind generosity for the use of City Hall
