City Hall, Belfast, County Antrim, Ulster, Northern Ireland
Plans for the Besfast city hall building began in the victorian period, as the city gained in prominence, briefly becoming the most populous city in Ireland, with the construction completed in 1906.
Built in the Baroque Revival style and covered in Portland stone it occupies an area of one and a half acres, with an enclosed courtyard.
The ornate interior features various types of marble and stained glass windows, while the extensive grounds contain statues, memorials, Northern Ireland's main war memorial, the Garden of Remembrance, and Cenotaph, where wreathes are laid on Remembrance Day.
