Weekend in Leeds

Yorkshire’s largest city flaunts its 19th-century industrial heritage with independent shops, craft breweries and innovative food haunts in old mills, Victorian arcades and cobbled alleys.


The Victorian Corn Exchange in Leeds



It’s worth the trip alone to glimpse the 1930s Tetley’s brewery offices this contemporary art gallery is housed in. Have a nosy at the old boardroom and the wrought-iron lift shaft, then browse the modern art exhibitions displayed in the wood-panelled offices. After, grab a pint at the bar, then head out to the patio for a game of boules (; Hunslet Rd; 11am– 6pm Mon–Sat, to 4pm Sun; free).


One of a handful of restaurants striving to put seasonal and local food at the heart of their menus, Shears Yard is a sophisticated bar-and-kitchen with a laid-back atmosphere. The food offers inventive twists on honest Northern grub, and dishes are light, meaning you’ll still feel like hitting Leeds’ excellent pubs after eating here (; lunch Sat–Sun & dinner Tue–Sat; 11-15 Wharf St; mains from £12).
