History Of The Birmingham Town Hall
Welcoming some of the world's most famous figures, from Charles Dickens to The Beatles, the Birmingham Town Hall is still one of the city's main focal points, benefiting from a multi-million pound restoration in the 2000s. It's also noted for its impressive concert pipe organ, and features an elaborately decorated hall that was inspired by Rome's Temple of Castor and Pollux. When the hall was built, Birmingham was already developing into one of the world's most prosperous industrial centres, with a thriving metal-working and glass-making industry and a rapidly expanding population.
