Leeds is famous for its shopping area. It's packed with the major retailers, ranging from budget shops to designer goods.
The parish church is a building from the mid-19th century, but the predecessor buildings date back to the late 7th century. The church was reconstructed in neogothic style and consecrated in 1841.
The town hall was built in 1858 and was inaugurated by Queen Victoria herself. Today, it is used for concerts and other events, but this victorian beauty hasn't lost a bit of its flair.
The Royal Armories is a giagantic museum consisting of weaponry from countries all over the world, including India, China, and several western countries.
The arcades in the city center
Leeds boasts several arcades, nearly all of which have been magnificently restored. If you are walking around, be sure to go out of your way to stroll through these.
The Royal Armouries
Worth a look especially as it is currently free and it has some worthwhile exhibitions & renenactments as well as jousting & falconry demonstrations in Summer.
City Art Gallery
Perhaps the only tourist attraction I stepped into. The musem houses best collections of 20th century art outside London. It was quite impressive, I have to say.
There are lotsa lotsa markets in Leeds and this is perhaps one of the best. On top of that, it is Europe's largest indoor market and also the birthplace of Marks & Sparks....wot more can you say?
St. John Church
An Anglican church built in the 1620-30s, so shortly after the civil war. It is one of the few examples from that period. The two naves are also very rare. Nice oak craftings.
A whole host of things to see and do - stately home, small zoo, aquarium, parks and gardens and a large program of special events throughout the year.
