Leeds

Travel Guide
Corn Exchange which includes heritage architecture and street scenes as well as a small group of people

From boundless shopping, dining and nightlife options to sporting events and music festivals, this is one of the liveliest cities in northern England.

Leeds is a city that thrives on its shopping, nightlife and sporting attractions. Leeds was once an uninspiring industrial city. Today, however, you’ll encounter parks hosting free festivals, a lively waterfront and pedestrianized streets lined with shops, bars and restaurants.

With many of the streets dedicated to retail, Leeds city center is a shopper’s paradise. Discover everything from sparkling malls to high-end retailers and independent boutiques, many inside restored Edwardian and Victorian-era buildings. The Corn Exchange, Victoria Quarter and Trinity Leeds have over 200 shops collectively.

The dining scene is equally impressive and draws influences from the presence of up to 130 nationalities in the city. Sample cuisine from China, India, Mexico and Pakistan plus traditional British dishes. Leeds Waterfront is an exciting hub of cafés, restaurants and fast-food joints. Enjoy the city’s famous nightlife, most notably at the Exchange Quarter. Options range from the traditional English pub to chic lounge bars, dance clubs and live music venues.

Leeds also offers a good selection of cultural attractions. Admire the grand architecture surrounding City Square and Millennium Square. See work by 20th-century sculptors at the Henry Moore Institute. Spot masterpieces by great British painters, such as John Constable, at the Leeds Art Gallery. Retrace Leeds’ history and discover artifacts from ancient worlds at Leeds City Museum. Visit The Royal Armouries Museum, which has over 8,500 objects of armor and weapons.

Sports fans have many choices in this city. Watch a cricket match at Headingley or a soccer match at Elland Road. Alternatively, attend one of the many summer music festivals. Leeds Festival welcomes well-known international bands while Opera in the Park and Classical Fantasia are both free events.

Intercity trains and buses provide direct services to Leeds from major English cities, including Bristol, Liverpool and London. Get around the city on foot and use public buses to visit areas outside the city center. Among these are the glorious Roundhay Park, Harewood House and Kirkstall Abbey.
