London City Hall Tours

star-3.5
7 Reviews
London City Hall
Opening its doors back in 2002, the glass-fronted, semi-spherical London City Hall marked a new dawn of London’s governance, providing a sleek, modernist façade for the London Assembly. The building alone is impressive, a geometrical masterpiece designed by architect Sir Norman Foster (who also designed the nearby Gherkin) and featuring eco-friendly natural ventilation, lighting movement sensors and solar panelling, as well as a dramatic transparent spiral stairwell that dominates the interior and climbs all ten stories. 

The landmark building now not only serves as the official headquarters of the Mayor of London, but as a public exhibition and meeting space, including an open-air observation deck and free Wi-Fi to all visitors. 

Practical Info

London City Hall is located on the south bank of the Thames in central London, between London Bridge and Tower Bridge and is open to the public Mon-Thurs 8.30am-6pm and Fri 8.30am-5:30pm. Admission is free but visitors must pass through security.
Address: The Queen's Walk, London, United Kingdom SE1 2AA, England
Hours: Mon-Thurs 8:30am-6:00pm and Fri 8:30am-5:30pm
