Locally my favourite building is our Mechanics Institute. A major part of my Town's history...

...however the state it is currently in is a disgrace.

The maddest looking building I've been to is Pena Palace in Sintra, Portugal. Yes, it's real!

Rochdale town hall is impressive.  (lots of the northern town halls are, flashing the wealth of the times)

Emily Moor tower (great views from the top)

 

There are some magnificent town halls in the north of England as you say.  Here's the one from my home town, Morley and its larger twin Bolton

This place always used to catch my eye when going up and down the A1 as a kid Compared to all the other rather grim-looking stops on the road, it stood out, just for the roof. A product of the Fifties, the second photo shows it in the original state, before they built a cafe into the structure.

I thought there was a building with a parabolic roof on Kingsland Grange Estate near Warrington.

On a more modest scale, another example of my liking for railway architecture. This is Scarborough and its also nice to see it has retained at least part of its canopy.

Another fine example is Huddersfield Station. Thankfully, also retaining at least part of the canopy

And it has (or at least had) the longest platform bench (139 metres) anywhere!

I didn't even know this place existed until I tried, and failed, to get Specials tickets. 

However it's pretty spectacular. I must visit sometime.

I like the gentle ambience of this building, I believe it's somewhere in Holland, but I really can't remember much about the specifics of the night I took the photograph.
