Leeds market

A market is the perfect place to bag a bargain and the Leeds Kirkgate Market [map] is home to some of the best deals to be had.
 
If markets aren’t usually your thing, think again, as this market is the largest in the country and is sure to have bargains that even you can’t refuse.
 
Whether you’re looking for clothing, accessories, baby goods, cosmetics or DIY paraphernalia the market is a good place to begin your search. In fact there’s more than 800 traders attending this recently renovated market situated in an impressive Edwardian building famous for their ornamental dragons and huge open-air market.
 
The market has a fascinating history. Outside the market is the place where Michael Marks first opened his Penny Bazaar in 1884, which lead to the foundation of Marks & Spencer [map], in 1890. Today M&S is one of the largest chains of shops in Europe and yet still maintains its heritage to Leeds Kirkgate Market. The market, which celebrated its 100th birthday in 2004, is centrally-based with the train station close by so there really is no excuse for not paying a visit.
