Martin Walker. I like walking around Leeds city centre, but when it’s raining - Trinity, the arcades, Victoria Quarter, Kirkgate Market. Only trouble is, things are so expensive in Leeds these days. For something special: Skipton, Richmond and other small towns are nice to walk round...

Daljit Malli. I like Leeds city centre for shopping . And I like Meadowhall but the White Rose is small and they don’t have more designer shop for choice and for eating what a farce you can’t fit anywhere when it is full that’s why I love Leeds city centre more choice and Meadowhall.

Sereta Turp. If I know what I want and want a peaceful day shopping i go to Crossgates or Garforth Main Street and when I want loads of shops I go Leeds Trinity.

Annette Cawkwell. I prefer walking round city centres to walking round a shopping centre.

Patsy Ann. Trinity, it’s great. The likes of Meadowhall are too big and overwhelming.

Alastair Barrie. Trinity, cocktails are the only thing that gets me through the experience.

Mike Harrington. Meadowhall. It’s more what the White Rose should have been like!

Tash Psyche Reece. Wakfield is better and cheaper than all the above.

Melanie Longbottom. Leeds town centre. White Rose has an army of pushchairs to dodge, smaller and less shops.

Elisa Stanley. Leeds Victoria Quarter, John Lewis, Trinity!

Margaret Thompson. Otley every time.

Martin Bell. York Design Outlet.

Tracey Payne. The Corn Exchange to support the independent shops.

Neil Greenwood. Trinity Leeds. Nice shops, nice places to eat, and great if it’s raining.
