various: Corn Exchange
The Corn Exchange in Leeds is a fine grade I listted building - one of the finest in the UK. This building, by Brodrick, dates from 1861-63, and is styled as a Roman Amphitheatre. Inside two galleries and a sunken centre, with gracefully curving staircases, and the dome above now house a cafe and designer boutique stle shops by a wide range of independent traders. Truly a great place to shop in style but note its lovely architecture too.
Victoria Quarter: A touch of class
Not a shop but a network of Victorian arcades, full of great little boutiques but brimming with major names too... Harvey Nicholls opened it's first Northern branch here (I could spend a day just in the food section!) and there's Vivienne Westwood, Ted Baker, Karen Millen to name a few. Stop off for coffee and and sandwich at Harvey Nicks coffee shop and watch the world go by.
P.S Don't be put off by the website, it's actually really rather nice shopping here!
What to buy: Shoes! But I would say that...
What to pay: Entirely up to you, there's LK Bennett, there's more designery stuff at HNs or there's Office and Faith for the more fashion conscious.
