shopping in Leeds shouldn’t be just about gleaming new stores and fancy arcades. Old-fashioned markets still have a place, especially when they are as grand and ornate as Kirkgate Market.
Generations of shoppers will be delighted that this rather special place has been restored. It wasn’t an easy project - the controversy over rent charges made the headlines more than once - but now it is completed it can take its place alongside Victoria Gate, our £165m development.
Leeds is ever improving as a shopping destination and Kirkgate Market as a big role to play.
