Visitor's Guide to Leeds

Visitor's Guide to Leeds With a collapsing industry it looked like this Northern town could have been buried in the memories of its manufacturing past, but thanks to a serious revamp and upgrade of the city centre, Leeds has been transformed into a cultural and commercial success.
 
Visitors come from far and wide to experience the diversity of this city which has been named in the top five of the UK’s best entertainment capitals. Designer shops pack the city centre and names such as Harvey Nichols [map] and Vivien Westwood [map] line the Victoria Quarter, but there’s still room for a wide variety of museums and cultural sights.
 
Leeds was one of the first places in the North to embrace city living and those with lofty ambitions should look out for some architecturally unique abodes.
 
A bustling business capital that clings to the southern edge of the Yorkshire Dales, Leeds is home to the “big five” accountancy firms and attracts young graduates from across the UK. Leeds is also a thriving student town and has two widely respected universities: The Leeds University [map] and Leeds Metropolitan University [map], which are both north-west of the city centre.
