An essential visit for anyone interested in the history of Leeds. As Betjeman wrote " The very heart of Leeds". With all the fantastic new buildings that Leeds now boasts his words still ring true. A special place for very many people in Leeds and no wonder.

Whitelocks is part of the history of Leeds, but easily missed, if you don't know its location. It is sited near Carphone warehouse on Briggate and well worth a visit. Great selection of Ales and also good food.
