Funny you say that, cause some people think that Leeds is infact very overrated, but then again, things may have changed since the recession hit etc. I had some freinds up from Bristol the other weekend & they all loved it here!

Leeds has kept some of it's industrial heritage, but you have to really look for it. Some parts of the city do still feel a bit decadent, especially around the southern parts of the city centre, but there are plans to regenerate these areas over time.

The two Italian style towers are part of 'Tower Works', which is currently being redeveloped into a creative media hub: www.tower-works.com

The university quarter in Leeds is very attractive - as are the victorian arcades. Some great photographs.

I think Embrace are from Huddersfield, doesn't really matter though as it's still part of West Yorkshire at the end of the day.

Leeds does have a pretty strong music scene. Local bands include the Kaiser Cheifs, Pulled Apart by Horses, The Pigeon Detectives, The Sunshine Underground, Wild Beasts (now moved to London) & Utah Saints!

Aye up, how is everyone ?...

The new Trinity Quarter opened in Leeds City Centre last week. For those who don't know, it is actually the largest shopping development to open in Europe this year!

With Trinity & the new Leeds Arena opening in September, 2013 is proving to be a good year for the city!

Enjoy

Part 6

Yeah, you should really. The centre is very compact & walkable so you could prob see most of the sights within a couple of hours!
