I wouldn't bother going out of my way for this slightly disappointing in terms of retail offer but well-presented in the décor. It's a shame it seems that Leeds won't support something a bit more up-market but that is probably all catered for iin Victoria Quarter. watty

Significant historical interest and still today in the age of the mall and online shopping is holding its own as an enjoyable and worthwhile retail experience. Long may it continue.

We made a special trip to see the Robin Hood Clock in the arcade, over 1 hour trip! Only to find the clock goes "bong" but the figures do not move - obviously not being maintained correctly or at all. One of the shopkeepers told us it had not worked for a long time. What a shame, people wasting time... More
