Leeds and the Shops

We attended a wedding in Leeds (UK) and it was a 3 hour drive from our place. We decided to slip in a little staycation and booked a hotel, Holiday Inn, which deserves its own blog post. The wedding was on Saturday and the next day, we spent our day exploring the city. It is a very old city I realized, with Victorian type buildings and architecture. What really caught my fancy though were the beautiful shopping arcades in the center of town.

Special mention to The County Arcade which is very Victorian built in the 1800's and the pastel colored Queen's Arcade.

The County Arcade which is very Victorian and is now a full of designer shops from Mulberry to Louis Vuitton and also home to a lot of famous cosmetic brands and toiletries like L' Occitane, Jo Malone and Crabtree and Evelyn.
