A nice piece of architecture, surrounded by modern monstrosities. Surprising that it has survived the bulldozers over the years.

I visited on the Saturday of the European Heritage Open Days. The exterior is very grand, a real industrial / empire era statement. Long facade, tall, big front steps, stylised scallop shells in arches, and lots of smooth Doric columns. The inside is very opulent....More

After having been to the Sinclair Seamens Presbyterian Church for the EHOD days we went next door to have a look inside the Harbour Commissioners Office. However it looked as if we had picked the wrong day of the two days that it was open...More

I was very fortunate to attend a dinner with the Ulster University. The venue is exceptionally good showing the history and character of Belfast. The outside catering was very good.

Interesting insight into the offices of the Harbour Commissioners and the men of power in Belfast over the years. Stately rooms, halls and staircases bedecked with large paintings.

Fab architecture, but some really interesting paintings & the Titanic table that didn't make it. It's really worth the visit albeit it'll only take at most an hour. Worth visiting no matter whether you're local or tourist.
