Visit the Manchester landmark that won BBC Two's first Restoration programme.
No expense was spared; when the building opened in 1906 the Lord Mayor described it as 'a water palace of which every citizen of Manchester is proud.'
Experience the wonder of the beautiful stained glass, rich terracotta, sumptuous tiles and amazing mosaics.
