Welcome to the Leeds Library’s 360° Virtual Tour.

Founded in 1768, The Leeds Library is Leeds’s oldest cultural institution and the oldest propriety subscription library of its kind in the British Isles. With over 250 years of history and heritage housed within the walls of its Grade II* Listed Georgian building in the heart of Leeds, a visit in person is sure to take your breath away. We have created this fully annotated 360° tour to give those who are unable to visit in person the full experience, and to give those who regularly visit an insight into the rich history that makes The Leeds Library one of Leeds’ best loved cultural institutions.
