People's Palaces: Manchester Town Hall’s Gothic Interior

Duration: 02:30

The sumptuous, highly crafted gothic interior of Manchester Town Hall is the triumph of architect Alfred Waterhouse’s design. Clustered columns, pointed arches and beautiful decoration point the way to the Great Hall where both Manchester’s historical achievements and increasingly important place in the world are woven into the fabric of the building.
