As one of the most popular university destinations in the country and a bustling student city, Leeds is known for its great party culture, with some 150 pubs and 29 nightclubs in the city centre alone. But Leeds is also considered the UK’s top shopping destination, dubbed the ‘Knightsbridge of the North’ for its unique mix of stylish pedestrianised streets, state-of-the-art shopping centres and Victorian arcades, the jewel in the crown being the Victoria Quarter, full of designer labels, high-street favourites and home to Harvey Nichols. In addition, the multi-functional Headingley Stadium draws rugby and cricket fans. Eating out offers good choice, too, despite the proliferation of big-name chains. Dig deeper to find plenty of independent restaurants in Leeds with wide appeal: great-value places like Salvo’s for wood-fired pizzas, the colourful, contemporary Create, the pleasing Sukhothai and the staunchly French Kendells Bistro, alongside the chic Fourth Floor Café and Bar at Harvey Nicks and fine dining at Anthony’s.
