An old building on Liverpool Canal in Leeds. It was absolutely empty when we were there on Saturday afternoon. It's paid attraction. Many floors and rooms full of old equipments (printing machines, cameras, wool processing machines, etc). The premises are nostalgic and creative. If you like something bit unusual, this is the place to go.

We went one rainy Saturday afternoon, with 3 young grandsons, 8, 5 and 2. The place was very quite. the older 2 were interesting in most of the displays and the old movie theatre. Some of the rooms where still closed off after the bad new year floods. But amazing at what had been opened. Someone had told them the... More

Had a great day at the wool festival this year. It was a bit disorganized at the start as no one was allowed in. Most people had travelled a long way and were in need of the toilets and a brew. We had to wait half an hour before we could go in. Good job it was fine. I think... More

Armley Mills is a good place to spend a rainy afternoon. Set in a real mill built during the Industrial Revolution, it still has some rooms fitted with original machinery.

We toured the wool processing and weaving rooms. The guide (I am sorry I didn't get his name) was interesting, informed, enthusiastic and entertaining. I loved my visit and will be going back soon. We were there half a day and could easily have stayed longer

This place kept our family busy for 2.5 hours and would have been longer if we'd known about the film! When we arrived we were advised that a film was about to start, we went to the cinema expecting something related to the museum but it was Big Hero 6... In the school holidays it's worth phoning first to check... More
