We did not go in but we had our tour's reference meeting point there. It looks grandiose and inviting. If we had more time we would have gone in.

Impressive old building which we tried to enter today but were turned away and refused access. They had something going on there possibly filming but it's still frustrating when you get turned away. Have no idea what the building looks like in the inside.
