Birmingham Town Hall

Not just a site of historical importance, this Birmingham icon remains a hub of modern culture in the United Kingdom’s proud second city.

The Birmingham Town Hall is a historic landmark that continues to play a key role in the city’s flourishing cultural life. When the town hall was opened in 1834, it was considered the finest music hall in the country. Today, it has returned to its former glory after a lengthy and meticulous renovation. Pick an event from the hall’s impressive program or simply stop by to admire the architecture and learn about the history of this important British site.

Marvel at the town hall’s Roman design with its impressive stone columns, which evoke images of the Parthenon in Greece. Enter the elegant foyer and admire the carved banisters and marble pillars. Walk through arched walkways to the enormous auditorium and see the 6,000 pipe organ, which was the largest in England when the town hall opened.

Once a meeting place for local government, the town hall has hosted world-famous speakers and politicians throughout the 20th century. Explore the halls of power and walk in the footsteps of influential Britons such as David Lloyd George, Neville Chamberlain and Margaret Thatcher. For a small fee, take an organized tour through the town hall. Tours are held once a month and are quite popular, so purchase tickets online in advance.

Attend a concert and see why the Birmingham Town Hall is renowned as a music venue. Visit on a Monday at lunchtime to enjoy the weekly organ recital, a tradition that has been upheld by the Birmingham City Organists since the early 1840s. Today, the hall hosts contemporary performances as well, with a variety of jazz, pop, rock and family events.

The Birmingham Town Hall is located in a prime location on Victoria Square in central Birmingham. It is easily accessible by train and bus. The area is dense with cafés, restaurants and bars and other attractions, such as the Symphony Hall. Tickets for events are available online.
