Leeds City Guide

One of the North's industrial powerhouses, Leeds came of age during the boom and bustle of the Industrial Revolution. From its humble origins as a Roman settlement and a medieval trading post, Leeds grew to a metropolis, flush with cash and eager to impress its status on the rest of Britain and the world. Today, Leeds boasts amazing Victorian architecture, the legacy of that brash civic pride, as well as world-class museums, shopping and other attractions.


Victorian Architecture

Leeds is famed for its 19th-century architecture, most of which is in the pedestrianised city centre. The Town Hall, built between 1853 and 1858, has been called an example of “Northern civic bombast,” an expression of the city's Victorian prosperity and power.

The Town Hall plays host to concerts, performances and special exhibitions throughout the year. Also unmissable is St Anne's Catholic Cathedral, a beautiful expression of the 19th-century Arts and Crafts style. Another Victorian landmark is the Corn Exchange, the elliptical glass-domed shopping centre that stands at the heart of the quirky, vibrant Exchange quarter.


Leeds's most famous museum is the Royal Armouries Museum, located at Clarence Dock. This massive collection includes over 8,000 weapons and pieces of armour, from swords and maces to rifles and machine guns. The highlight of the collection is the stunning elephant armour, an intricate system of chain mail and metal plates that would have turned the animal into a monstrous medieval tank.

In the heart of the city, Leeds City Museum features free exhibits on world and local history, with exhibits ranging from Egyptian mummies to representations of Leeds's modern, diverse culture. The Art Gallery and Henry Moore Institute bring the best of art from around the world into the centre of Leeds – the Moore Institute focuses on sculpture in particular.

Dining and nightlife

You don't have to spend a lot to eat well in Leeds. You can if you want to, of course – Michelin-starred Anthonys in the city centre is among the city's best restaurants, and also one of the most popular. Be sure to book ahead. At the lower end of the price range, though, Leeds offers a bewildering diversity of different styles, from American pizza and burgers at the Belgrave Music Hall to North African delicacies at Cafe Moor in Kirkgate Market. A local favourite is the Greedy Pig, which adds sophisticated modern touches to the traditional fry-up. Don't let the presence of Spam baps on the menu fool you; this is a serious approach to the familiar bacon roll.

Leeds has a large and diverse night life, driven by the student population of its two universities, but thankfully not every bar is a deafening student hangout. The areas around Call Lane in the Exchange quarter are home to stylish bars, while the region around Briggate is a bustling centre of bars and clubs. One bar in this area, North Bar, was named the best place to drink in Britain by The Observer.


Summer is when Leeds comes fully to life, with annual festivals such as the Waterfront Festival, which sees boats swarm the water around Armouries Square. A hotly-contested Dragon Boat race is the highlight of the festival. Late May and early June are also the time for the annual food festival, which attracts gourmets from all across the country. Perhaps the most famous of the city's festivals is the International Concert Season, which runs throughout the summer, with over 200 events in venues all around the city.

History lovers will enjoy the special events hosted at the Royal Armouries, where trained experts recreate medieval life and warfare, including jousting, hawking, the proper use of plate armour and hand-to-hand combat.

Where to stay

Leeds hotels range from the luxurious but pricey to the more affordable. The stunning Portland stone art deco facade of the Queens Hotel is a major city landmark. Other notable hotels in Leeds include 42 The Calls, a boutique hotel located near the Exchange Quarter.

Not every hotel in Leeds is a historic luxury building. There are good budget ones as well. For instance, the Express by Holiday Inn Armouries provides budget accommodation at Clarence Dock, moments from the Royal Armouries Museum and a short walk from the city centre. This area, once neglected, has undergone major renovation, with new buildings springing up along the banks of the canals that once brought coal to fuel the city's industrial heart.

When to visit

A visit to Leeds in autumn or winter is a good idea, as long as you don't mind some rain and cold weather. A better time to visit is from late spring to late summer. Summers in Leeds are mild and typically dry, with highs averaging around 21 C (about 70 F) during the hottest months of the year. May and September are also good times to visit.

Getting there

Leeds Bradford International Airport is mainly a destination for local flights, with few long hauls. However, it's relatively easy to get there from around the world by changing at Amsterdam.

Additionally, Leeds is easy to reach by train – around two to three hours from London's King's Cross station – or by car.
