A city hall, or town hall is the headquarters of a city's (or town's) administration. The usual term in the United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand is "town hall"; London's City Hall is an exception. Both "town hall" and "city hall" are used in North America, depending on the size of municipality.
As important government buildings, many city halls are known for their distinctive architecture.
The expression "town hall" has more friendly connotations, often suggesting the town meeting form of government.
