Visiting Leeds – A City Guide
Leeds, historically a market city, has attracted visitors for centuries. Its blend of Victorian architecture and trendy shopping continues to make it an ideal choice for a city break or longer, more leisurely stay to soak up the Yorkshire charm.

 

Leeds: city layout
Leeds is in Yorkshire county, 44 miles northeast of Manchester via the M62, and 195 miles north of London via the A1. The railway station is a national hub and the airport, shared with Bradford, is 10 miles northwest of the city.

Step out of the railway station, just north of the River Aire, and most of the compact city centre’s attractions, hotels and restaurants are at your feet. The Headrow, the city’s main thoroughfare, bisects the city from east to west.

Head right from the station and you’ll find the main Shopping Quarter, north of which is the Cultural Quarter with entertainment, galleries and music venues. Head left out of the station and it’s the Financial Quarter, north of which are two universities. Cross the river behind the station to reach Brewery Wharf for more shopping and museums.

The city centre is well-served with plenty of street maps dotted around to help you find your bearings.

 

Top attractions in Leeds
You’ll be able to watch opera, ballet or the latest indie bands in the Cultural Quarter and University venues. Notable buildings surrounding Millennium Square include the Town Hall, Leeds City Museum and Leeds College of Art. The square also hosts public events and concerts.

Sports fans are well-served with an international cricket ground at Headingley and Elland Road stadium, home of Leeds United Football Club.

 

The concierge recommends…

  • Get your fill of culture at the Leeds City Museum, Leeds Art Gallery, the Tetley and the Henry Moore Institute.
  • Try Yorkshire Pudding in its spiritual home.
  • Take a tour of Elland Road stadium, home of Leeds United.
  • Satisfy your shopping needs with a visit to the Victoria Quarter.

 

Hotels in Leeds
You can find peace and quiet or buzzing nightlife on your doorstep when selecting a Leeds hotel.

Staying close to the centre offers the best of both worlds. Near the docks, between the A61, the River Aire and the Royal Armouries Museum, is a quiet district ten minutes’ walk from both the city centre and the Cultural Quarter, and a five-minute drive from Crown Point Shopping Park.

Cavendish Street
is in the vicinity of Leeds City College and University of Leeds, both with lively bar scenes, and a 15-minute stroll to renowned live music venues, such as The Brudenell Social Club.

Favoured by both business and leisure travellers is the well-connected area around Leeds Railway Station. From here you’ll be able to make your way easily north towards Westgate and take the main artery east, The Headrow, leading to restaurants, venues and the Shopping District.

 

Eating Out in Leeds
Leeds has everything from Michelin-starred restaurants to Middle Eastern street food plus, of course, good old-fashioned fish and chips.

The area around the Shopping Quarter hosts upscale restaurants, including the Michelin-starred Man Behind The Curtain on Vicar Lane.

Visitors to the Arts District often end up at the classic, French-style Kendell’s Bistro; don’t miss the fresh-baked bread.

Fans of street food should head to Bundobust (Indian), the North African/Middle Eastern Café Moor in Kirkgate Market or Trinity Market’s street food vans, which change each month.

Nash’s has been serving fish and chips to Leeds since 1924 – eat in or take away. A short walk away is The Town Hall Tavern, a gastropub specialised in British grub including the local delicacy: Yorkshire Pudding.

 

The chef recommends...

  • Yorkshire Pudding: A simple batter of eggs, flour and milk, roasted quickly at high temperature. In Yorkshire, it was originally a starter to fill people up when expensive meat was scarce. You’ll usually find it at a traditional Sunday roast.
  • Parkin: A gingerbread cake traditionally made with butter, ginger, oatmeal and treacle that ranges from the biscuit-like to the more moist and sticky varieties. Traditionally eaten on Bonfire Night (5 November).
  • Wensleydale Cheese: A crumbly, moist cheese that goes well with cranberries, apples and wine. Its popularity spiked when it showed up as a favourite snack in the Wallace and Grommit animations.
  • Yorkshire Forced Rhubarb: Not the name of the latest punk band, but the produce of the Rhubarb Triangle: Wakefield, Morley and Rothwell. Once, 90 per cent of the winter rhubarb of the world came from here. Try it in a tart from a local bakery, or stewed with custard as a pudding.

 

Shopping in Leeds
Leeds’ reputation as a shopping destination has grown over the years. Though it’s relatively compact, there are over 1,000 stores here, from boutiques and arcades to international fashion icons.

There are five miles of shopping streets in the area around Briggate, the main pedestrianised shopping street. Kirkgate leads toward two markets where you can explore the stalls of independent retailers. You’ll find upmarket stores between Briggate and Albion Streets, including those at Trinity Market and Victoria Quarter.

The Headrow
is home to The Light, a large new mall with cinemas, designer retail and even fitness centres, in case a day’s exploring the estimated 4.5 million square feet of shops isn’t enough of a workout already.

 

Top markets and malls in Leeds

  • Kirkgate Market: You can find fresh fish, a Harvey Nicholls restaurant, bakeries, furniture and a range of craft beers plus loads more at this gorgeous Grade II listed building in the centre of Leeds.
  • Victoria Quarter: Luxury is the name of the game in these glass-roofed arcades housing some 70 fashion, perfume, shoes and jewellery stores, plus the biggest stained glass window in Europe.
  • Corn Exchange: Those weary of the usual chains should visit this self-proclaimed ‘Home of Independents’ set in a Grade I listed Victorian building. Shop for local beers, handmade gifts and specialty items such as drums and vintage clothing.

 

Culture & Nightlife in Leeds
From the latest indie bands to opera, contemporary art to open mics, Leeds is packed with things to do day and night.

Follow the River Aire around toward the Royal Armouries Museum, the national museum of arms and armour. A ten-minute walk away is The Tetley, a contemporary art museum set in a former Tetley’s tea warehouse.

The Wellington Street area is home to the photography and film gallery White Cloth, plus The Flux, where you can catch open mics, poetry and small exhibitions.

Opera buffs can head to the Grand Theatre, home of Opera North. The Stanley & Audrey Burton Theatre, in the Cultural Quarter is the place to see ballet. Nearby on Quarry Hill is the West Yorkshire Playhouse.

Just off Kirkgate, Call Lane’s nightlife ranges from cocktail bars to traditional pubs, some with live bands or DJs.

Up near the Universities you can see art exhibitions at The Henry Moore Institute by day and catch live music acts at the O2 Academy by night.

 

Live music venues in Leeds

  • Leeds Town Hall: Classical music has been performed at the Town Hall for over a century but the venue also hosts comedy acts and rock bands.
  • First Direct Arena: Expect huge names of pop and rock, from Morrissey to Miley Cyrus, plus major events like World Championship Boxing.
  • Brudenell Social Club: This community venue is at the centre of local indie music, hosting upcoming talent most nights of the week.
  • Wharf Chambers: A bar and venue run by a workers’ co-operative, set up as a space for music, art, film and special events. Expect a mix of benefit concerts, exhibitions and DJ nights.

 

Visiting Leeds with a Family
Families are well-catered for in Leeds, with loads to do for kids of all ages. Refuelling after a session at the museums or bowling is easy, too, with some kid-friendly restaurants to sample.

Leeds City Museum, in Millennium Square, has four floors of interactive galleries including Egyptian mummies, the Leeds tiger and regular special events for children.

Explore the city at your own pace with the self-guided walk downloadable at Curious About Leeds. It covers galleries, arcades, the River Aire and more.

In the suburb of Headingley you can get up close and personal with some animals at the Meanwood Valley Urban Farm.

Looking to blow off some steam on a rainy day? Try The Leeds Wall climbing centre or MFA Bowl in the Merrion Centre.

 

Family-friendly restaurants in Leeds

  • Almost Famous Burgers: Kids are very welcome, and you can’t go wrong with burgers and fries. There are some groovy vegetarian options available, plus beer and wine for the grown-ups.
  • Salvos Restaurant: Italian family hospitality at its best, with activity sheets, crayons and lots of fuss made over kids of all ages.
  • Brasserie Blanc: French flavours from renowned chef Raymond Blanc in a relaxed atmosphere. The kids’ menu features Henri Le Worm, a charming character created by Blanc’s son. Henri has his own educational app and website, created to teach kids about healthy foods.

Latest Leeds Hotel Reviews


Exemplory service and great stay
By zDelboy
The staff at the hotel made our stay that extra bit special - with attention to detail and and a 'will help' knowledgeable attitude. The location is good, has onsite parking and is only a ten [More] minute stroll into the own centre. Breakfast is plentiful and served until 11.30am on Sundays. The facilities are good - including the pool, jacuzzi, steam room and sauna which was well used during our stay. Our room was what you expect from a good hotel and the bed was very comfortable and bath robes a nice touch. My wife, young daughter and her friend did not want to leave! [Less]
