The building was designed by Sir Charles Barry, and opened on 14 May 1859. It was initially named simply “The Royal Albert Hall”, but this name was soon replaced by “Manchester City Hall” because it refers to both cities: Manchester being a city of commerce and industry, while London City derives from its location between Westminster Abbey and Buckingham Palace (the latter being part of British history). The name has changed over time as well; originally it was simply known as ‘City Hall’.
