Belfast City Hall

Places to See | Belfast, Northern Ireland.



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

The City Hall built in Baroque style stands in the centre of the city. Its dome has been part of the skyline since 1906. The exterior is in Portland stone and the splendid interior is embellished with Italian marble and elaborate plasterwork.

The grounds of Belfast City Hall are packed with famous monuments and statues, detailing the history of both the building and Belfast. Today, the grounds of City Hall are a favourite of city centre workers, students and tourists for taking a break from the bustling city.
