Visit Leeds have put together a wonderful video detailing some of the brilliant reasons to visit the city! Check it out below.

In terms of innovation and fashion, it’s obvious that we live in a city of trendsetters. With the people of the city always one step ahead of the latest fashion, it’s actually said that the metrosexual man was born right here in Leeds.

When you consider the amount of venues to visit for shopping, ranging from famous destinations like the Victoria Quarter and Trinity Leeds to independent places such as online boutique store Love My Apparel, it’s clear that Leeds is the place to be for fashionistas of all ages.

It’s not just clothing though, Leeds is a city where the people are constantly looking at new ways to innovate. From changes to the city such as the pedestrianisation of Greek Street through summer, to the incredible independent businesses that you can find all across the city centre in places like the Kirkgate Market and the Corn Exchange, you can always rely on Leeds to be at the heart of innovation.

The people of Leeds are undoubtably trendsetters too. The city offers everything from a global selection of cuisine to some of the most prestigious hotels in the UK. Combining this with impressive sport and leisure facilities and the wide range of diverse shows on offer for theatre and cinema goers, there’s always something going on for visitors.

Leeds is also full of innovative, exciting ideas that differentiate us from your average city, such as the unrivalled range of festivals that you won’t find anywhere else in the country. Events like Live at Leeds, Made in Leeds Festival, Leeds Festival, Cocoon in the Park and more for the music lovers to get their teeth into.
