City Hall

Notable Building in The South Bank

Home to the Mayor of London, bulbous glass-clad City Hall was designed by Foster + Partners and opened in 2002. Visitors can walk up the ramp to the entrance to the Chamber and, if a public meeting is taking place, they can take a seat inside. Look for the massive map of London on the floor near the cafe on the lower-ground level. The scoop amphitheatre outside is the venue for free entertainment in warmer weather, from music to theatre.
