Leeds Town Hall

The Headrow, Leeds, West Yorkshire, LS1 3AD

A walk that sets the best 19th century buildings in the context of their times

Come and find out about the buildings designed between the late 1830s and the turn of the 20th century.

The growing industrial town needed more buildings: commercial, residential, civic and religious. How were building styles, materials, forms and locations influenced by demand, fashion, technology, legislation and individual creativity? 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?

Limited to 15 tickets.
Meet on the main steps on the south side of the Town Hall.

City centre parking is still free on Sundays. Details:
