Victoria Leeds is where contemporary meets the traditional.
The popular city centre shopping district brings together the Victoria Quarter and its beautiful arcades with the shiny Victoria Gate, which opened in 2016.
It boasts high-end designers and fashion brands, as well as everyday retailers, cafes and of course, a flagship John Lewis.
This year has seen 12 new additions to the district, from a tailors to a fine art gallery – including five new openings this month.

First up is Victoria Gate. Sofa-in-a-box company Snug opened a permanent store this year, following on from a successful pop-up shop. It has earned a big digital following for its sofa-in-a-box concept - settees which are packaged into boxes and can be assembled without any tools. Photo: James Hardisty
3. Shu & Luxe
From high quality Spanish and Italian footwear brands to Scandinavian clothing collections, ladies clothing retailer Shu & Luxe sells classic pieces with trend-led elements. Photo: James Hardisty
The final new addition to Victoria Gate is Sook, which opened earlier this month. Sook offers a flexible pop-up space for businesses to rent, showcasing a variety of retailers and creators. From fashion designers and yoga, to a beauty lounge and tech launch, visitors can expect a carousel of exciting products and events. Photo: James Hardisty

It stocks a beautiful range of jewellery, including signature stacks and bespoke welded bracelets. The brand also offers engraving, tattooing and piercing services in a relaxed space.
