Weetwood Hall

Weetwood Hall is now a hotel and conference centre, which includes a manor house and buildings of the same name dating back to 1625. It was taken over by the University of Leeds in 1919 and was a hall of residence until 1993, when it took on its present role after extensive re-development.
