One and a half hours on this tour flew by! From the grand entrance foyer, through the beautiful main hall, into the courtroom where you follow the steps of the guilty down into the cells and then finally up 200 steps onto the roof (weather permitting) for great views over the city of Leeds. The guide had a great delivery,... More

A good venue for a concert whatever your tastes are . The refurbished seating is good and the acoustics excellent . The cafe could do with a bit more seating and rearrangement but I suppose it constrained by the size of the room . There seemed to be general refurbishment of the building going on when I was there last... More

We'd been to a concert here, loved the architecture so returned for the once a month tour, which we booked online in advance. I'd say there were 20 on the tour which are usually held on Saturday mornings. The tour guide was really knowledgeable and explained about why when and how it was built. We visited the court room the... More

Unusual place to visit. Lots of history, great views from the top. Unusual café in the basement. Lots of steps only for fit people.

The town hall is an imposing victorian era Neo Classical building, so different from Manchester's gothic style for example. As me and Sally Anne are both classical music fans the opportunity to take in a gig here during our stay in Leeds was irresistible. The European Union Chamber Orchestra had an interesting programme with the marvellous Jennifer Pike playing Mozart.... More

While Mondays are not usually ideal days to visit city art galleries, museums etc, especially in winter months when such are often closed, we fortunately were advised by the Leeds visitor centre to try out the Monday lunch time concert at the Leeds Town Hall. Apparently this hall is not usually open to visitors though there are occasionally guided tours.... More

Hi Joyce Thanks for your great review. Our free lunchtime organ recitals have been very popular since they first started in the 1980s! They take place on most Mondays from September through to April. I hope you get the opportunity to join us again for a future concert. For information, Leeds Town Hall tours take place twice a month and... More

I had a wonderful night last night at the Banff Mountain Film Festival tour in Leeds. The show was fantastic and the venue was great. The main hall in which the screening took place is beautiful.

The building is a really impressive piece of architecture that shows how prosperous Leeds has been through history. When we visited there was some covers over the front as some restoration work was going on.
