Lonely Planet review

The majestic City Hall, completed in 1901, stands 548ft tall in Penn Sq. It's the world's tallest masonry construction (and larger than the US Capitol) without a steel frame, and it's topped by a 27-ton bronze statue of William Penn. A gentleman's agreement to keep City Hall the tallest building in the city lasted until 1987. Access to the tower observation deck and guided tours available.
