Let Leeds surprise you!
Not far from the Headrow is Millennium Square where stands the Civic Hall and the Leeds City Museum. The Civic Hall is where the local council offices are situated. It is one of the only white buildings in Leeds along with the Quebecs Hotel and a few buildings on the Headrow. It was built in Portland Stone (whereas the rest of the city was mainly built in bricks and sandstones). In front of the Civic Hall are two golden owls, the symbol of Leeds. At the museum (designed by Cuthbert Brodrick, him again!), you can learn everything about the city, from prehistoric times to modern day (free entrance).
Thanks a lot to Estelle from VisitLeeds for her advice.
