Manchester Town HallA neo-gothic palace of local government
Arguably Manchester's most impressive building, the neo-gothic Victorian town hall towers over Albert Square. Besides its striking façade, visitors are also welcome to explore some sections of the interior, still home to the City Council. Here, the Sculpture Hall contains memorials to influential figures from Manchester's rich history. Tours of the iconic 80-metre high clock tower are available, though they must be pre-booked.
