Belfast City Hall

Belfast City Hall is Belfast City Council's civic building. It is located in Donegall Square, in the heart of Belfast city centre. It first opened its doors on 1 August 1906.

Inside City Hall, you can register births, deaths, marriages and civil partnerships, take a tour, and admire the public art.

In the grounds of City Hall you can visit the Titanic Memorial Gardens, picnic on the lawns or see the building lit up at night.
