Leeds is known for two main reasons: shopping and the university environment. Because of the students the city is full of pubs and bars and tons of live music. For shopping, the Victoria Quarter is ideal. A beautiful and spectacular gallery reminiscent of Victorio Enmmanuelle in Milan or the malls in Moscow. Some lit arcades full of fantastically decorated storefronts where big brands show off their best products to a clientele willing to spend. Walking through Victoria Quarter is one of those things that you have to do if you visit the city. Regardless as to whether you want to buy anything or not.
