The Leeds Town Hall is historical building dating 1858, with an amazing Victorian architecture. Queen Victoria herself has attended the opening ceremony. The building has been severely damaged during the World War II, but it was quickly repaired soon after. As one of the most prominent town halls in England, it is also one of the largest ones. The biggest room in the Leeds Town Hall is Victoria Hall with a capacity of 1200 people. The facility has hosted events like The Leeds International Pianoforte Competition, Film Festival and many other exciting concerts.
