  • You have to book online for this free tour beforehand, but it is so worth it. Learnt so much about the history of the area and City Hall. Had access to City Hall Chambers, plus function room with amazing artwork and historical pieces including Washington's desk. The guide was brilliant pointing out all the hidden details on the paintings and sculptures, that I would of missed on my own. Highly recommended!!!
