Manchester City Hall is one of the landmarks in the city. It's a Gothic bell tower. The carving details on the exterior walls of the building are very rich and well preserved. The arch-roofed corridor inside the building is also very beautiful. It is absolutely worth seeing.
This city hall is one of the landmarks of Manchester. It was built in 1877 and expanded in 1938. It is divided into old and new parts. The old part is the popular bell tower. There are two statues on both sides of the door. They are two great scientists born in Manchester: Dalton and Joule. As for the new part of the 9th floor, it is the municipal office.
Today, when we go to Manchester, we can still go to museums and canals to find traces of the industrial revolution and feel the changes that this great change has brought to mankind. Today's Manchester City reveals its old age in its new look and its vanguard in its prosperity. After the Industrial Revolution, Manchester City declined, but now it is gradually recovering, starting to transform from manufacturing to service-oriented economy, tourism, transportation, finance, education and creative industries are beginning to flourish.
The city hall building stands on Albert Square. Sculptures and ornate decorations can be seen everywhere in the building. On the top of the building, a magnificent 85-metre-high tower stands in the sky. It's Manchester's main administrative center. When we went there was a preparatory work for the celebration of the Olympic Games at the gate. There were a lot of staff. Still with various booths, unfortunately, the time is relatively tight, otherwise at night to see, it should be good.
I just want to say that it is being repaired and renovated and completed in 2024.
Located in Albert Square, Manchester City Hall was built in Victorian times. It is a masterpiece of Gothic Renaissance architecture and a first-class protected building in Britain. Manchester is the second busiest city in Britain and the first industrialized city in the world. It is the largest financial centre in Britain except London. Canal Street, near the City Hall, is a pedestrian street in downtown Manchester, full of gay bars and restaurants. It is also the most successful Gay Village in Europe.
Come to Manchester to watch the ball. Come here by the way. The railway station is about 15 minutes away from the train. The buildings around the square are Gothic and spectacular. There are also many places around to eat, so you can just come to visit in the morning - to have lunch - to watch the ball.
The most distinctive sign on the square is a Gothic building built in Victorian times - the city hall built in 1887. It occupies a small area and is small in size. It is 286 feet high and costs 1 million pounds. It is an old but intact Gothic building. The city hall was open to the public, and we left our credentials and went in for a visit. The city hall is divided into old and new parts. The office space is in the new city hall. The old city hall is now used as a place for banquets and exhibitions. The old city hall has four floors and is a Gothic building. The new town hall has nine floors. The old and new city halls are joined together. The buildings are of the same color and style. On each side of the old city hall was a white marble statue of two great scientists from Manchester. One was John & Dalton and the other was James & Joule.
The city hall building stands on Albert Square. Sculptures and ornate decorations can be seen everywhere in the building. On the top of the building, a solemn 85-metre-high tower plunges into the sky. Tourists can visit it on their own, but because it is Manchester's main administrative center, if you visit the tourist center with a group, you can visit the building in more detail.
