Whenever I visit Leeds I usually go to this wonderful architect. Even though I can't afford to go to designer shops and buy. But when you wonder around this place It is cool is it because of the way it is build. It is must go place of Leeds.

Thornton's Arcade beautiful arcade but not as it used to be. Many shops come and go with the To Let signs appearing constantly. Surely arcade like this should be kept for the independent business's with reduced over heads to keep arcade unique and special.

A good experience with a variety of independent shops with a super selection of goods on offer. A stones throw away from the better known Victoria Quarter but a more quaint and traditional setting. Well worth a visit.

I love this arcade. It's steeped in tradition and resurrected many child hood memories for me. Take your time as you walk down the arcade, take in the architecture as well as all the quaint stores. it's a true Leeds treasure.

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

The Thorntons arcade is one of the nicest arcades in Leeds. It's a must see filled with lots of great shops and places to eat!
