Bristol City Hall

Bristol City Hall

I have been lucky enough to be involved in the transformation of Bristol City Hall what used to be known as Bristol’s Council House. Photographing the interiors has been a real pleasure as has working with Alison White and her vision.

“Both the outgoing and incoming Mayors have said what a fantastic improvement (has been achieved) at City Hall. Everyone I have spoken to today, the first full council meeting since the £17 million refurbishment, is very impressed. Thank you for making it happen.”

Bristol City Council

City Hall (formerly the Council House) has been the seat of local government in Bristol, England since 1956 (before then the seat was in the Old Council House on Corn Street). It is situated on College Green, opposite the Cathedral and at the foot of Park Street in Bristol city centre (grid reference ST582728). Throughout its history it has been home to Bristol City Council. It was designed in the 1930s but built after World War II. The architect was Vincent Harris.
