Despite the name, City Hall is neither located in nor does it serve a city (as recognised by English constitutional law), often adding to the confusion of Greater London with the City of London, whose headquarters is in the Guildhall, north of the Thames.

Guildhall, London. Parts of the current building date from 1400



It has been used as a town hall for several hundred years, and is still the ceremonial and administrative centre of the City of London (which should not be confused with Greater London, of which it is only a very small part)

Utrecht town hall consisting of various guild houses regrouped in one complex which now houses the town hall, part of these were substituted by a neoclassical building in the 19th century which looks like a Greek temple
