“Great Restoration, Bad Management”

Leeds Corn Exchange
Ranked #12 of 167 things to do in Leeds
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 5, 2013

It is fantastic that this building was restored and to a very good standard. It is also nice that the cafes carry some info on the menus to explain the history of the place ( a good touch). However, it looked as if it was in a transition of some sort. Great shops but not many of them, most rooms were empty. Downstairs was a dinning area which apparently serves good food but there was a funky smell. The management should really make sure these things don't happen. We were put off going downstairs because it stunk. This place could be so much more if they just stick to keeping the weird and wonderful shops intact.

Superb building, tastefully refurbished, containing shops, designer cafes and restaurants. The glass dome is awesome. Worth a visit.

The many small, often crowded one to another shops. The choice of garment on sale and best if all the view from the balcony,

The Corn Exchange used to be great, until all the shops were booted out in the vague idea of turning the place into one giant dining experience. Which never materialised. And now they're letting shops back in again but it still isn't the same. Such a shame,
