Leeds Town Hall

The Headrow, Leeds LS1 3AD

If there’s one building that shrieks civic pride in Leeds, it’s the majestic town hall, the masterwork of busy Leeds architect Cuthbert Broderick (also responsible for another iconic Victorian Leeds building, the Corn Exchange). It’s a magnificent statement of the confidence of the city in the 19th century, from soaring tower to stone lions – many cathedrals are less grand than this. Concert Hall, film screenings and special events aside, the Town Hall is not routinely open to the public, but catching one of the monthly tours means you can get to see the old court chambers and cells, and climb the landmark clock tower for a real insider’s view of the city.
