Manchester Town Hall was designed in a neo-Gothic style by Alfred Waterhouse and built in 1887 to celebrate it's city status in 1853.

A statue of the Roman Governor, Agricola, is erected on Albert Square and he founded Manchester via the original fort of Manuciam. There are other statues including a monument to Queen Victoria's consort. Albert Square is used for a lot of city's national and international events including the annual Christmas Markets and reviving how city events would have been held in its city's history.

You can arrange a guided tour of the Town Hall via the Manchester Visitor Centre either by person or by telephone although a charge is made.

The main stalls of the annual christmas markets are held there.
