About this Event

Come and find out about the buildings designed between the late 1830s and the turn of the 20th century.

The growing industrial town needed more buildings: commercial, residential, civic and religious. How were building styles, materials, forms and locations influenced by demand, fashion, technology, legislation and individual creativity? How did architecture in Leeds relate to the wider picture of urban development? How does the Victorian heritage strike us now, after more than 100 years of change?

Meet on the main steps on the south side of the Town Hall.

Alfred Waterhouse is last but not at all least in our list of ace architects. A northerner by birth and training, he became a national figure, and we have some gems in Leeds.
