Leeds – The Victorian Quarter – Architecture

Although Leeds is only about 45 minutes drive away from my hometown, Sheffield, this was only the fourth time in forty years that I had come to visit the neighbours.

Naturally there’s a lot of competion between the two cities, especially when it comes to football and my previous experiences as a visiting Sheffield United supporter to the Elland Road stadium had been less than pleasurable to say the least!

On this occasion though I was visiting for work and I could walk around and appreciate the good things about the city centre without worrying about my choice of football team.

I’d never realised it before but the Victorian Quarter, the main shopping district, has some beautiful architecture.

Quirky period buildings are at every turn.

I particularly like the galleries of the old shopping arcades.
