  • This place is a genius invention of the council to keep the centre fresh. It is used for all sorts of events all year round from music to Christmas fairs, from tennis to summer sandcastles. It is a very versatile space and heavily used all year round. The beautiful civic building is at the top and it looks forward over the city towards the lower end of the square and is surrounded by the museum, a playhouse, bars, eateries, etc, so it's pretty easy to spend a few hours here. Well worth a visit. Totally accessible. Parking nearby and disabled bays just up the street.
  • Huge open air square in the centre of Leeds, used for a variety of events, a very nice German Market is here in the run up to Christmas, there is giant TV screens and numerous bars and restaurants all the way round. Recommended.
  • I was here for the Christmas Market. The venue itself is good but you of course there's not much to make out with the market stalls etc. The market itself was fun, mostly food-oriented, the chips stall was amazing and the hot chocolate warmed my soul. You can buy some knick-knacks too. There is an adorable snow-globe perfect for kids and adults who are kids at heart like me. It's £8 for up to four people so be sure to make a group beforehand and complimentary pictures included
  • It's a great public space that Leeds city council does its best to use in various ways. There is a Christmas market in the run up to chart. In the summer there has been a funfair and city beach. In February there is usually an ice skating rink. At other times it has been used for food festivals and concerts. There is a giant TV screen there which is used for showing major sports events. Sometimes it is just a big empty space!
  • Great place in centre of Leeds. Has many bars & restaurant around it & central for most places. Usually has events there (e.g. music, ice rink, german market, etc.)
