The Britannia Works was a hosiery company, whose factory stood on the north end of Granby Street in Leicester. The building was demolished in the early 1960s.

The empty space next to the works was the site of the Temperance Hall, built by Thomas Cook and opened on 19th September 1853. This was also demolished in the early 1960s.
