Located in West Yorkshire, the city of Leeds is the largest city in the county and is an attractive city with Georgian, Victorian, 20th and 21st century architecture to enjoy. There are many museums, cafes, restaurants and theatres to visit. Leeds is within easy reach of the Yorkshire Dales, the Yorkshire Moors and the Peak District. In the centre of Leeds is the main shopping area which is a roughly half mile square between The Headrow, Vicar Lane, Boar Lane and Park Row. The main shopping street is the broad and bustling Briggate where many flagship stores can be found, including Harvey Nichols and House of Fraser.
Centred on the massive dome of the Corn Exchange, the Exchange Quarter is the centre of Leeds' bohemian life, with one-off boutiques, funky cafés and piercing parlours filling its pretty cobbled streets. It is becoming increasingly chic with a wide range of upscale bars and stylish restaurants, particularly on Call Lane.
The main tourist information office for the city is in the railway station, but there are various other information points across the city (e.g. Central Lending Library, The Headrow).
