Overview

Opend on 23 October 1934, Swansea's Guildhall has played a central role in the civic life of the city for many years. The building has proved to be functional as well as being architecturally splendid. Its innovative design and features were widely copied in other municipal buildings during the two decades following its completion. As the civic centre, it has functioned as the focal point of local government and justice, it is the fount of civic ceremony, and is one of the principal centres of social and cultural life in Swansea. The Guildhall has undergone several alterations and extensions, but it has retained its original character as an example of 'a classical approach to modernism'. It is now regarded as an historic building in its own right, and one of which the people of Swansea are justifiably proud.

Visited for a works Christmas party! Everybody seemed to have a lovely time so maybe my review is a little unfair. However I found the food to be disappointing, drinks to be over priced and the entertainment a little bit unsophisticated for my taste.

The Guildhall is visible from most parts of Swansea. Completed in 1935, the large hall - Brangwyn Hall was raised by 6 feet to accommodate the Brangwyn Panels. Sadly, a trip up the tower is not on offer. (I went up it once in the...More

What can you say the Guild hall is used as a council building so not the most visited site of interest in wales. It as however the Brangwen hall with fantastic murals on the walls. so if murals are your thing worth a look.

The Brangwyn Hall with its Empire paintings is a must. Admission is free and it is open most days - unless there is a function. The more often you go there the more details you will see. Another interesting feature is Swansea's connection to the...More

Visit the Guildhall to see the refurbishment and to look at the unique Brangwyn Panels. They were originally painted for the House of Lords, but were considered too racy. As the concert hall was being built at the time they were rejexted, the dimensions of...More
