Left Bank Leeds
Cardigan Road, LS6 1LJ Leeds
Join us for an evening of local history as our speaker tells us all about Leeds Zoo which opened in 1840, off Cardigan Road in Hyde Park.

The Victorians were known for their enthusiasm for exotic creatures, and so with this climate of fascination, the Leeds Zoological and Botanical Garden was created, complete with a bear pit! (parts of which are still standing).

Come and find out about the ill-fated venture that only lasted eight years.

It will be an informal evening with the opportunity to ask questions. The bar will be open for drinks and bar snacks. Doors open 7:30pm / talk starts at 8pm.


Tickets are £5 or £4 (conc.)
Please book in advance >

This talk is part of a series of monthly events run by Left Bank Leeds that will explore the history of the buildings and people of Leeds. It has been made possible with thanks to the support from Heritage Lottery Fund.
