“Photographers Not Welcome in Millennium Square”
Reviewed December 24, 2012

I was prevented from taking evening photographs in Millennium Square as apparently Leeds Council require you to have a "permit" although this is not included on the byelaw notices displayed in the area and the photography policy on the Council's own website only relates to museums and galleries.

I returned the following day as part of an organised photography course and was able to take outdoor photographs including the Civic Hall and fairground without the indignity of being escorted off site again.

A daytime steward advised that people can get away with snaps on their mobile phone or compact camera but a DSLR and a tripod are a big no-no (especially at Christmas time).

Public toilet facilities were not pleasant Sunday lunchtime - disappointing when visitors were being encouraged to buy food and drink at the Christkindelmarkt.

“usually something going on”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

There are plenty of places to sit and have a coffee or something stronger and to people watch. There is usually something happening there too. very close to the railway and bus route. Worth a look.

“Awful concrete mess. With expensive non-working water feature”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

If you live in Leeds - this is a place to avoid.
For many folks who don't remember, I hope to add a picture of the lovely gardens at the front of the Civic Hall which pre-date the current pavement.
In fairness to LCC, they probably now have a flexible venue space.
But Leeds (centre) suffers from such a lack of greenery and grass/tree/woods that this is more of all that is wrong.
