Manchester Town Hall

Manchester Town Hall in Albert Square is one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. Regarded as one of the finest examples of Neo-Gothic architecture in the United Kingdom, it is one of the most important Grade 1 listed buildings in England. The building was designed by architect Alfred Waterhouse and was completed in 1877. It contains many grand ceremonial rooms, such as the Great Hall, which is decorated with murals by Ford Madox Brown that illustrate the history of the city.

The Town Hall is open Monday to Saturday, however please note that rooms are not always available for viewing if an event is taking place. You are advised, therefore, to check in advance to see which rooms are available.
