Last Explorer Friday we went shopping. Well, kind of…

We started our ‘shopping tour’ at Victoria Gate with its posh shops and its interesting architecture that commemorates Leeds’ tradition of manufacturing textiles. After Victoria Gate we had a look at Kirkgate Market, once the largest indoor market in Europe and the birthplace of Marks & Spencer. Our final stop was Corn Exchange, completed in 1864, which is home of more independent shops and foodie outlets.
