Our Town Hall

Manchester Town Hall and Albert Square on a sunny day

At the very heart of the city, Manchester’s Grade I listed town hall is a much-loved landmark. It's where we gather at important times to honour and celebrate. It's where we welcome visitors and do business. It’s where we host civic guests and international delegations. As well as Mancunian weddings and special events.

But the building – opened in 1877 – was showing its age. So, we started a major update. To restore, protect and improve this architectural masterpiece for Manchester and the nation. 

The Town Hall closed in January 2018 so work could begin.
