A CITIZEN OF LEEDS IS KNOWN AS A LOINER WHICH IS A WORD DERIVED FROM LOIN OR ROLL OF CLOTH

Most people would not think of visiting Leeds as a tourist, but this is a great city. We have designer shops Luis Vuitton, Vivienne Westwood and Harvey Nichols. And of course, Leeds is the birthplace of Marks and Spencer’s. there is also a massive indoor and outdoor market.
There are many café’s and restaurants and because of our fantastic university plenty of bars and nightclubs.
Each year we have the Leeds festival, which is one of the top three festivals in the country with headliners such as the Artic Monkeys, Razor Light, Muse and Red-Hot Chilli Peppers.
Regular gigs by homegrown bands such as the Kaiser Chiefs and the Pigeon Detectives also take place in the city.
We have many museums including the Royal Armouries, which is linked to the Tower of London.
Temple Newsam, Abbey House and Thackeray Medical Museum are within easy reach of the city centre with Harewood House and Lotherton Hall on the outskirts.

I HOPE YOU ENJOY MY TRAVEL PAGES

    Interesting tips on your home city! I certainly remember reading about Lord Darnley, the husband of Mary Queen of Scots, but never realized he came from Leeds. I see you have signed up for the VT meetings in Paris and I look forward to meeting you there.
