Lovely environment with quirky features which are so unusual and pleasant to be there. Lovely to see shops and small businesses within this and other arcades in the city of Leeds. I love the clock feature and the ornate steel work and structure of the roof. Makes such a difference to the usual bland shopping fronts that are so "samey"... More

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.
