Hull City Hall is a civic building located in Kingston upon Hull, East Riding of Yorkshire, England.

The City Hall does not perform an administrative function for Hull's council, as this is based in the Guildhall.

It is a Grade II* listed building, built in Baroque Revival style by Hull's City architect Joseph Hirst 1903–09, restored c. 1950 following war damage, and altered in 1986 and 1989.[1]

Located in Queen Victoria Square in the city centre, Hull City Hall is home to a grand central hall which plays host to a varied programme of concerts including pop, rock and classical music as well as civic functions such as graduation ceremonies for the University of Hull.[2] The city's main tourist Information office and shop is based on the building's ground floor.[3]

The main hall has a floor, balcony and gallery with total capacity for 1,200 people seated, or up to 1,800 with a mixture of standing on the main floor and seated on the balcony and gallery.[4]
