City Hall

Historic Building in Colonial District, the Quays & Marina Bay

It was here that Lord Louis Mountbatten announced the Japanese surrender in 1945 and that Lee Kuan Yew declared Singapore's independence in 1965. Today, City Hall and the neighbouring Old Supreme Court have found new verve as the impressive National Gallery Singapore. If you're particularly interested in the building's history and architecture, free guided tours are run daily via the National Gallery.
