I was there in December and it was the most beautifully decorated building. Inside was picturesque.The sops are very independent of themselves and I don't think I have ever seen anything like them before. Maybe I had more of an "Awe" feeling since I had Googled places to go see before I had left for Leeds and the Corn Exchange... More

A truly beautiful building which houses a great selection of Independent boutiques. Clothing, jewellery, beads etc. if you want something not on the high street you won't be disappointed. Also the ceiling is breathtaking, grab a coffee & enjoy the surroundings.

The architecture of the building is amazing and the decor inside is so beautiful (especially the ceiling). When there are no events on i.e. no market stalls you can see this place at its best.

Out of the bustle of the normal shopping areas in Leeds is this circular architectural gem. A good new use of a building without wholesale destruction of the interior. It has been so tastefully restored that you can almost imagine the hustle and bustle of the traders there in times gone by. Yet you almost forget you're in the middle... More

Great building and it is nice to see old architecture being tastefully preserved. Leeds has some amazing historic buildings an is well worth a day trip. That said apart from an interesting card shop there was very little other than the building to recommend it . The ground floor was dark and roped off and there were puddles of water... More

Easy to find down near the markets in Leeds. Parking was very easy and really cheap. If you want to go to Leeds to look at the building designs the corn exchange does not disappoint. The ceiling is amazing as are the ceilings in the arcades. The colours and the tiles in arcades are bright and vibrant. Very nice architecture.... More

I love the building and that alone should earn it 5 stars. Unfortunately it loses stars for the lack of access; not just no wheelchair access but not even a handrail to help you up the steps. It loses more stars for the poor shops; many units are empty and the others are predictably faux alternative. There are a couple... More

The building is very interesting and the roof (just imagine that the glass has been cleaned) is spectacular. There are some interesting independent shops here but there is a lot of empty units and the whole of the ground floor is empty. We had a nice coffee just before we finished for the evening. There were plenty of tables and... More
