Town Hall tours


Explore the hidden secret side to the Town Hall! This tour is your chance to stand at the dock where prisoners once stood, sit at the judge's bench in the Courtroom, see the Victorian prison cells and climb the 203 steps to the top of the clock tower to see the clock whilst taking in a view of Leeds unlike any other.

Please note: Some areas of the tour are inaccessible to those in wheel chairs or with limited mobility, please be aware of this before booking your ticket. Access to the clock tower and outside the clock tower is subject to weather conditions, if the weather is particularly bad we retain the right to remove this part of the tour for safety reasons.
