  • Check out Kirkgate Market's latest world street food, Food Hall. Interesting cuisines from traders ie Bang and Mee, Manjit's Kitchen, Afsaneh's Persian Kitchen and many many more. I totally enjoyed eating here day after day.
  • Best selection of fresh food available. New large open indoor food court with around 6 pop up food vendors. The regeneration has done it wonders and hopefully it shall go from strength to strength with the opening of John Lewis next door.
  • It's pre making it a modern place to shop at time of writing. Modern but majority can be found in what remained post fire. A must go to place in Leeds, if not just to see where M&S started
  • Lovely place to walk around and soak in the atmosphere of an old English indoor market. The architecture is very pleasant and it's a decent size with plenty of food stores as well as the more traditional market stalls. Interestingly it has the first M&S store.
  • One of the historic and amazing places in Leeds. It's a must visit and great place. You will not get bored
