Show Map

Leeds Town Hall

The Headrow, Leeds, West Yorkshire, LS1 3AD

An early morning walk that introduces the main designers and the structures they added to Leeds.

The growing industrial town needed more buildings: commercial, residential, civic and religious. How did demand, fashion, technology, legislation and individual creativity shape building styles, materials, forms and locations? How did architecture in Leeds relate to the wider picture of urban development? How does the Victorian heritage strike us now, after more than 100 years of change? This isn't just a chance to adore neo-gothic extravagance; it’s a chance to think about the meaning of the buildings designed between the late 1830s and the turn of the 20th century.
