Free activities in Leeds

Check out the HUB theatre’s latest program, as they operate on a pay what you feel basis. This means the shows are accessible for every budget.

Heading to Kirkgate Market is a great way to spend a morning in Leeds. Remember most of the vendors will only accept cash so come prepared with some notes and coins. Wandering the stall itself without buying anything (if you resist) is a free activity. This 18th century market is actually one of the largest in Europe.

Where to shop

If it’s retail you’re after, look no further than the Knightsbridge of the North.

Not at all corny
For an architectural landmark and shopping experience in one, check out the Corn Exchange. Its unusual dome shape, quaint arched doorways and elaborate iron balconies make this Victorian building a memorable place to shop.

Loads of choice
For shopping late with plenty of choice try Trinity. Another indoor complex, this modern building contains three floors of shops and restaurants. Non-EU customers can even shop here tax free, claiming back their tax at the airport.

Looking for luxury?
Grade II listed arcades in the Victoria Quarter are where you need to head for the designer brands. Victoria Gate is also a super modern addition to this area. The diamond-shaped polished concrete is a fitting reminder of the textile heritage from which the city was born.
