This afternoon I paid a visit to Glasgow City Chambers ( City Hall) to view the superb internal decor and architecture. I could not venture beyond the ground floor which is cross shaped with mosaic floor and numerous granite columns supporting a very ornate ceiling.

The entrance to the building is at the head of the cross which incorporates an axis which runs east towards the reception area.

The Council operates official tours which run twice daily. I will join one of these to learn more of the origins and design of this stunning building dating from Victorian times when Glasgow was the second city of the British Empire and flaunted its wealth and status through buildings such as this.
