Some pics from a tour of the Exhibition Building a few weeks ago.
You start off on the ground floor, with the guide giving a brief history. It was interesting to see the building empty – I’d previously been here when it was busy – for exhibitions or to get a COVID vaccine.
Here’s a panoramic shot from my phone.
You can choose to take the lift or walk up 8 flights of stairs. I chose the latter. Impressively my phone accurately reported afterwards the number of flights I’d climbed.
The stairwell includes some interesting photos on the walls, including this one from mid-20th century when it seems car parks were seen as more worthwhile than parkland or other public space.
We booked at dusk, hoping for a nice sunset… it was overcast, but the view from the Promenade was still good.
Definitely worthwhile to get some history of the building and the views.
