Walkit Route WP4

Welcome to Leeds’ Civic Quarter – this is Sign WP4

Walk it Leeds is a project aimed at making it easy for you to find your way around Leeds City Centre on foot.

This sign gives you clear, easy-to-read mapping of the local area. It shows you the main shopping areas in yellow, places to eat and drink in orange, and other places of interest in purple.

The map is known as ‘heads up’, which means the map is orientated to the direction you are looking at it, rather than having north at the top.

The sign is also solar powered, so the map should be backlit if it’s before 9pm and if it’s dark.

This sign was installed in October 2012 and the map was last updated in November 2011. If you spot any mistakes or damage, we’d be pleased to hear from you. Please email walkitleeds@leeds.gov.uk or call 0113 2474685.

You are at sign WP4 in Leeds’ Civic Quarter. From here you can see the Henry Moore Institute, with its black stone cladding, Leeds Art Gallery, the Library and the Town Hall. The paved area in front of these buildings is called Victoria Gardens, named after Queen Victoria’s visit to open the Town Hall in 1858.

Both the Art Gallery and the Henry Moore Institute are open seven days a week, and both are free to visit. Further up Cookridge Street is the Leeds City Museum (also free to enter), the Civic Hall and Millennium Square, where many of Leeds’ major events are held.
