amazing what you learn.

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.

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.

What a great location for a civil wedding! Beautiful high-ceilinged room for the ceremony. Two very friendly and helpful ladies officiated. We were a very large crowd of family & friends. Things could not have gone better: Bride and groom both agreed: Best dayof their lives!

Been here a few times now. Decent, pretty venue - I like the high domed ceiling in particular. Loses a star as seats a bit cramped
