Great for shopping and for sightseeing. This and all the other Arcades in Leeds are well worth the visit.

Leeds has a staggering amount of superb architecture and this is a great example of why you should always take time to look up while enjoying the high-levels of retail therapy that this city brings.

“It's a must to see if you visit Leeds, bring your camera”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

Fantastic everywhere you look, it's like a trip back in time and shows great detail in the building.
With the new Trinity centre this is a taste of the past and its just great, step back in time.
Specialist shops and great little coffee and tea stops as well.
Bring your camera look up at the roof and clock at the top end.
With the Victoria centre near by this area offers a lot for the visitor to Leeds.
