Leeds Central Library
A Grade II listed building built between 1878 and 1884, Leeds Central Library is a public library situated on the Headrow. It houses the city library service’s single largest general lending and reference collection and hosts the Leeds Art Gallery.
The building has four floors, ground level to third, connected by beautifully ornate stone staircases. They pale in comparison to the majesty of the Tiled Hall, however. 80 by 40 feet of tiled oak, ebony and walnut perfection, the Tiled Hall is one of the most enchanting environments to find yourself getting lost in any book- provided you don’t get distracted by the magnificent roof
And if neither of those tickle your fancy, with more books than you could read in a lifetime, Leeds Central Library will definitely have a shelf just for you.
