Briggate Yards & Arcades
by Peter Brears & Kevin Grady
This guided walk covers Briggate, the heart of Leeds shopping area for almost 800 years. Leeds Civic Trust has been delighted by the high quality of restoration and improvement works which have been completed here over the years, particularly in the arcades, which are among the finest in Britain.
The pedestrianisation of Briggate and the prospect of major investment in the vibrant shopping area offers considerable scope for further restoration of Briggate’s numerous yards, enabling both ‘Loiners’ and visitors to appreciate the historic core of this great city.
You can do this walk in an hour, but if you stay to enjoy the fine choice of shops, cafes, pubs etc, it can easily take a day!
A lovely colourful guide to the best that Briggate has to offer. Originally published in 2007 some things may have changed but this excellent walk will give you a place to start to rediscover the hidden gems we take from granted in the city.
