Leeds Civic Hall

The crown of Millennium Square



Opened by King George V in 1933, Leeds Civic Hall is one of the finest civic buildings in Britain, built from still-sparkling white Portland stone. The front of the building with its two 170 ft towers, Roman Corinthian style portico with 6 columns, overlooks Millenium Square, impressing passers by with its sheer magnitude.

Behind its intimidating veneer, Leeds Civic Hall is a fabulous and unique events space. Its large classical style makes it perfect for conferences, pubic meetings, or just general perusals around its grand architecture. Plus, located in the city centre, you won’t have far to walk if you need a coffee, a cake, or a beer.

Be sure to look out for three things when exploring Leeds Civic Hall. First – and the one you can’t miss – The Great Entrance Hall, a T-shaped room of hugely welcoming proportions, be sure to note the carpet with its Leeds coat of arms. Second, The Grand Staircase, magnificent steps designed from alternative slabs of black marble and Hopton wood stone. Third, The Reception Hall, with its display of Civic plate and the throne made for Queen Victoria when she opened Leeds Town Hall in 1858.

With this wealth of antiques, Leeds Civic Hall continues to make history everyday.
