♡A day in Leeds ♡

September 16, 2019

Leeds is an amazing city. It’s my home town, where I’ve been brought up and lived all my life. I really don’t think the city gets recognition for what it’s like there’s much here. Places to see, things to do and there’s always new things coming.

 Leeds is full of hidden gems - there’s so many places I go and I just don’t even think other people know much about. Leeds is an amazing place and I think it deserves to be recognised. Just even to spend a day here would be an experience and you can get so much done.

 One thing I think that’s amazing about Leeds is the shopping. To start with we’ve an amazing city centre. It’s huge!! full of shops and resteraunts. There’s so much to do in it - there is parks, fields - honestly you name it. You can make a full day out of shopping when it comes to Leeds as there are huge shops - Harvey nics, John Lewis and a huge primark! If you don’t want the city centre we’ve so many other places to go. There’s even a more ‘vintage’ take in the corn exchange at the bottom of the town, which is a good / shopping place full of small, independent stores. It’s got breathtaking architecture and is so lovely to stroll though.

There’s the white rose on the outskirts of Leeds - it’s huge shopping centre with so many food places and shops that you can make a full day out of. along with that and there’s a new and upcoming place called ‘the springs’ with afew shops opening, a cinema and Nando’s! When it comes to shopping you can never run out in Leeds - I’m confident to say it has nearly every shop you could possibly dream of.

 When it has warmer weather, Leeds is the place to be! There are huge parks such as temple Newsam which I know I always go to - roundhay Park is another similar place. They’re well known places with land marks that are famous to Leeds. They have beautiful fields, parks and nice places to sit and eat. Perfect for picnics and just a spend free day out. Me and my friends always go to have a good time.

 For food - Leeds is one of the best places. In town there are so many large chains and so many little gems I myself are still working on finding. There are so many places to go to but I want to share my favourites! Blackhouse is known for a steakhouse but they also serve other food & an amazing Sunday dinner! I think the best fish & chips shop is here, Fisherman’s Wife there are so many more amazing places but I think these two have to be my favourite of Leeds gems - they’ll be a post
coming with more of these!

 This is such a small taster and little overview of Leeds - there’s so much more to this amazing city and I could go on and on but I think everyone needs to even just spend the day there as there’s so much to do, to see and to love.
