Things to do in Leeds

Leeds is a culture hub within Yorkshire and the third largest city in the UK. It’s no surprise it has huge range of attractions, dazzling nightlife and retail options shopaholics dream of.

For attractions, you’ll want to visit some of the city’s many art galleries, including the recently refurbished Leeds Arts Gallery and the historic The Henry Moore Institute. There are plenty of sculptures and examples of public art dotted all around the city as you wander. The Leeds music scene is on full flow during the summer, and there’s no better place to find it than at Leeds Festival. And can you really visit Leeds and not be consumed by the city’s love for football? Elland Road is close to the centre and a great way of soaking up the Leeds culture.

If you’re on a shopping trip, Trinity Leeds should be your first port of call. It’s home to all of your retail favourites, with 120 shops, bars and restaurants under one glass roof. Kirkgate Market is a historic venue dating back to 1875 and provides a way of bargaining some great deals, while the Corn Exchange is the place to visit independent shops with niche products.

When you visit Leeds, you have to try one of the city’s famous curries. We recommend Bundobust, but there are plenty of Indian restaurants scattered around. The Midnight Bell is great for a Sunday roast, while Nash’s Fish and Chips offers the best of British cuisine.
