Government Building · Hidden Gem · Architectural Building
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.
