“The victorian arcades are better”
Review of Thornton's Arcade

Quite narrow and not particulary interesting but neither bad. There are some interesting shops but the best are elsewhere. I prefer the Victorian Arcades.

The area of, and around, Thornton's arcade is interesting, and takes you back to the Victorian era. It gets you away from the High Street chain shops, to something a bit different.

Beautiful arcade, with nice little cultural and historic features. A must in Leeds. Accessible from the high street, bang in the middle of city centre and close to Trinity Shopping Centre and the market.

This arcade has the most amazing Victorian architecture. It was a real surprise. When crossing the city centre I used this as a shortcut just so I could enjoy it again and again.
