Leeds Industrial Museum

Canal Road, Armley, Leeds, West Yorkshire, LS12 2QF

Just a short walk along the canal from Leeds Rail Station, a visit to Armley Mills over the weekend is the perfect way to feel at one with the water. When you get there, prepare to be astounded by the beautiful building which was once the world’s largest woollen mill, as well as its history, as the museum reveals the City’s industrial heritage. You’ll see machines that were once powered by the mill’s waterwheel, learn how workers turned wool into cloth, and find out about tailoring too!

We’ll take over the cinema and showcase films made locally sharing images and stories about the Leeds Waterfront as well as hosting an exhibition from a local arts group. Canal boats trips will also give families and individuals the unique opportunity to see the city from a new perspective, out on the water enjoying the ride, spotting wildlife and learning about the history of the canal.
