Head North

by Be-Blogger U.K. on: May 21st, 2011

A while ago I headed to Leeds as an invitation press trip for two days to explore the city side of fashion retail, their love of vintage clothing and lifestyle.  Leeds city (capital of the North) is located in West Yorkshire, England the town centre may look humungus on the map but is actually a short walking distance from the main railway station to the main shopping district.

Leeds is known for it’s mix of arts, culture, architecture and style. It has it’s fair share of unique history of industrial revolution where dominate industry like wool, flax, engineering, iron foundaries and printing were vital part of trading.  I became drawn to their charming architecture and admired it’s original feature at the Victoria’s Quarter home to high fashion brands, and Kirkgate Market the largest indoor market in Europe. The are Henry Moore Institute, Leeds Art Gallery and Royal Armouries for art and history lovers like myself and I loved how the old historic building and monuments stand itself so attractively and scenic without dominated by the views of neighbouring modern buildings.

If you fancy heading up north, be sure to check out Leeds Live it Love it website for information for travel and visitors.
