Manchester Town Hall, Manchester

4.3
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.

  • If you are told that it is a jewel of architecture and that the "hall" is impressive, but you can not enter because it is in renovations until 2024, you only have the option to go to see the facade and take a couple of photos where you can. Cheer up because if they do music festivals right there you're going to have to imagine that the building is back there. yes, I know I'm a little exaggerated and the tall towers look despite everything.
