This place is off the busy Leeds high streets but not too far away from them. Its worth a visit, the shops inside are more unique and quirky. I think there will be something for everyone inside even if it is just for food or a coffee. Its not very big but you have shops on both floors. It's worth... More

Although not as alternative as it was in the past, the Corn Exchange still contains some interesting shops and was a nice way to spend an hour. There was a vintage market happening on the lowest floor. We also got cake.

Really enjoyed the large Fair Trade shop, local craft market and musician. My only gripe was that one shop seemed to be at war with the live music, which I thought was rather disrespectful: playing loud music right near where she was performing. Definitely still a gorgeous venue for a shop.

Most of the decent shops have since moved on to better locations within Leeds. I wouldn't bother with the top floor at all unless you have a fetish for looking at empty rooms and white emulsion. It's a shame as it is such a nice building.

Nothing much to say about this building apart from it has character from the inside and out. There are a few independent retail shops inside that's all.

Visited on a Sunday when there was a craft fair. Really nice, different Christmas presents. Well worth a visit and especially good if you need a break from the hectic pace of the centre of Leeds. A little oasis.

Very impressive building which houses a variety of pop up shops and sometimes art events. Nice place for a morning coffee with some light lunches on sale too. Toilets were rather smelly.

An amazing building that needs to be seen if you're just visiting. This weekend we visited the 'showcase spectacular' event for creative stalls. A lively atmosphere and somewhere different for gifts and art. Even without this event, the building hosts loads of little shops and food places, something for everyone. I'm new to Leeds but i've been told it's much... More

Service in the food court was very slow, took almost 10 mins to bring 2 drinks and cakes out. It wasn't busy. Also not much available from the menu, had to change our order twice because none left.

This beautiful old building is worth a look on it own but it has also plenty of small independent shops within it. Take a look at Alice Finds Tresures for something a little different
