Belfast Webcam, City Hall View

Europe, Ireland, Belfast
 

Location Information:

 

Belfast City Hall is the civic building of the Belfast City Council. Located in Donegall Square, Belfast, Northern Ireland, it faces north and effectively divides the commercial and business areas of the city centre.

The gardens surrounding the City Hall are a popular with office workers taking their lunch in the summer months, as well as tourists and teenagers gathering in their dozens to enjoy the green.

Various statues stand in the grounds, including one of Queen Victoria by Sir Thomas Brock. There is also a granite column dedicated to the American Expeditionary Force, many of whom were based in Belfast prior to D-Day.

Brock also designed the marble figure of Thane, the Titanic Memorial, in memorial to the victims of the sinking of the RMS Titanic. The ship was built in Harland and Wolff's shipyard located in the east of the city. The monument was originally located at the front gate of City Hall, at the junction of Donegall Square North and Donegall Place.

There is a memorial to Sir Edward Harland, the former head of the Harland and Wolff shipyard and Mayor of Belfast from 1885 to 1886. It too was sculpted by Thomas Brock. The grounds also house Northern Ireland's main war memorial, The Garden of Remembrance and Cenotaph, at which wreathes are laid on Remembrance Day.
