  • It's a beautiful little arcade with some quality little shops. There is a cafe selling fantastic, aromatic coffee (beans also available for purchase if you wanna make some at home), a bar selling a variety of delicious beers, a very good hairdresser and a few other pearls waiting to be discovered. So if you feel like just having a walk around Leeds, come by and see for yourself. Especially during winter near Christmas there are lovely decorations and the whole place has an amazing atmosphere. Definitely recommended.
  • Good shops especially like going to the Radley shop 4 good quality bags staff great if you see a style you like yhey will also show you similar ones or colour range
  • Beautiful and classic decor! Its an experience it in self just walking through! A must see if you're in Leeds.
  • Great set of largely independent shops for things you can't get elsewhere. Well worth a visit if you like nice things and don't fancy the busier Victoria Centre.
  • Welcome skate store is great. Great staff who handled my 6 year olds tears and refusal to move, advised my 11 year old on the best board for him progressing upwards from his old board. Generally friendly welcoming shop and staff.
