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
