    Bus and train station are not clsoe to each other

    As with most cities in the world, the bus station is usually close to the train station or there is an easy transport link between the two. That isnt really the case unfortunately in Leeds. The bus station (also the National coach station) is at one end of the city centre, while the train station is at the other end. Now, if you are coming to the bus station and need to get to the train station, that's easy as there are many buses that go there.

    Unique Suggestions: If you are coming by train and want to go to the bus/coach station then you have to walk to nearby Boar Lane. Go out the front exit, near Burger King not the exit near McDonalds, and turn left, then walk to traffic lights at end. Cross the busy intersections to the right and that's Boar Lane. You will see buses on other side of road outside of Greggs and BHS. These will go past bus/coach station.

    Fun Alternatives: Alternative of course is taxi and taxis from stations will be black and white cabs which are generally most expensive. It will cost about 3-4 quid one way.

    Dont bother spending too much in this shop, The quality is very poor and the prices are extremely expensive. The actual shop itself is very crowded and too much stock is put in such a tiny area.

    Unique Suggestions: the trendy jewellery found here is actually quite nice

    Fun Alternatives: Head to hellraiser near the busstation or route one opposite macdonalds
