Town Hall information
Mansard roofs, sandstone turrets, wrought-iron trimmings and over-the-top balustrades: the High Victorian wedding-cake exterior of the Town Hall (built 1869–1889) is something to behold. Inside, the elaborate chamber room and the wood-lined concert hall are almost as good (the concert hall has a humongous 8000-pipe organ and hosts free monthly lunchtime concerts).
Unless there's something on, you can explore the halls off the main entrance.
