This arcade is one of several in Leeds. It has many interesting boutique type shops. Wander through its relaxed atmosphere as well as some of the other arcades in town.

I walk through this arcade regularly, and always do a spot of window shopping! Look out for the lovely clock, too. :)

Another exquisite arcade in the centre of Leeds. Links the two main shopping streets and comprises some nice independent shops.

I think Leeds has more of these Victorian Arcades than any other UK city (I may be wrong) but there are certainly a handful of these visually stunning masterpieces of Victorian iron and glass ...... well worth seeking out the lot
