I don't think you can put two buildings for Birmingham. Although it may well be split, there should be a decision on one because people are voting for architecture and there are clearly 2 different buildings there which is rather unfair. People should be asked to vote only on one.

Alternatively, split Birmingham so the poll has 2 options- one for each.

Also, Mancs town Hall has 2 buildings, the triangular main building and the extension:

Have we mentioned Manchester Town Hall's extension, which itself is also a beaut, slotting in beautifully between the original town hall and the Central Library!

They're all spectacular Victorian buildings, but if I had to pick one it would have to be Leeds. Mainly because I'm a fan of classicism and that's a monumental example of the style.

You should have also included Liverpool and Newcastle's town halls.

Where's Livrpl? :crazy:

I'll go for Leeds. Victorian classicism at its best!




Btw, I like the city halls of Europes mainland way better.

Chogmook: If we did extensions as well then Birmingham would have three buildings! ;)

We don't know who's voting in this poll. It will still be seen as unfair? Suprise, suprise, Manchester has found a surge of people who think they have the best town hall. :eek:hno::lol:
