Home to many beloved sights and attractions, from shopping haunts and nightclubs, to quirky cinemas and glorious countryside, there are certain things you will only truly appreciate if you were lucky enough to grow up in the city. Here are 10 things that only true Leeds folk will understand.

2. You check the time from the tower

3. The Majestyk was the place to party
Once one of the most popular places to party in Leeds, thousands of revellers hit the dancefloor here before it closed for the final time in 2006. The building is now due to be the new home of Channel 4s national HQ.

4. We have a favourite pub
Whitelocks Ale House has been part of the Leeds drinking scene since 1715 and is the oldest public house in Leeds. Fancy cocktail bars may be aplenty nowadays, but Whitelocks is something special.
