To make life easier for those braving the mad dash around Leeds, here are 10 of the best shopping centres and districts for those last minute Christmas buys.
1. Corn Exchange
Full of quirky independent shops, the Corn Exchange on Call Lane is the perfect place to find something a bit different. Get away from the city centre crowds and enjoy the stunning Christmas tree, or some food to keep you going.

2. Victoria Gate
Opened in 2016, Victoria Gate is the newest addition to shopping in Leeds and offers classier (and more pricey) choices, flanked by a huge John Lewis. The place to buy something really special.
3. White Rose
The trusty White Rose needs no introduction, and is the perfect place to park up and get everything you need in one place. Just expect big crowds over the Christmas period.
4. Kirkgate Market
Often overlooked in Leeds' shopping scene, Kirkgate Market offers local, fresh produce, quirky gifts and two card stalls. It's open as normal apart from Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year's Day.
