The tower of Portsmouth Guildhall is a striking and elegant landmark on the city skyline. The building is constructed in the neo-classical style with steps leading up to columns having large bronze doors behind them.
The Guildhall was Portsmouth's original town hall before it became a city, and opened in 1890. The entire building, apart from the tower and outer walls, was destroyed by bombing during World War II in 1941. It was later rebuilt and reopened in 1959.
Today the Guildhall is a cultural centre for the area, hosting a dazzling range of events including concerts, comedy, dance, exhibitions and even wrestling! It is also a conference centre and wedding venue.
