Leeds Waterfront
(walkabout series)
by Chris Furniss

This guidebook takes you on two fascinating 1-2 hour walks along the historic and splendidly regenerated Leeds City Centre Waterfront.

When the River Aire was made navigable in 1700 the thriving woollen cloth marketing town of Leeds became an inland port. Over the next two hundred years, with the addition of the Leeds and Liverpool Canal, the Waterfront was at the heart of the growth of the city.

You will see splendidly restored historic buildings, imaginative contemporary architecture, new areas of vitality reflecting the dynamic modern city, places to eat and drink, and almost rural waterside settings. No visit to Leeds is complete without a visit to its Waterfront!

A lovely colourful guide and part of the walkabout series. Originally published in 2011, some things may have changed but this excellent guide will help you rediscover the hidden gems we take for granted in the city.
