The sun came out the wind blew strongly from the south and the rain stayed away as we walked from the Bewley's Hotel into the heart of Leeds, with a stop at a Starbucks for breakfast. Leeds is a very busy and one would say one of the neater cities we have been to in the UK. The population is very mixed multicultural and their shops range from the low cost to the exclusive. We saw $10 watches and one over $25,000. The new Trinity Leeds has many many pluses, but may also be the cause of some stores in other parts of the city centre closing. There are quite a few lanes and "mini malls" with their own features. There are also many "civic" buildings such as the Town Hall, Museum (closed on Mondays), Art Gallery and Library. The Apple store is one of the largest we have seen. There is also a canal running through Leeds and would have loved to explore the waterway.
Went into a Tesco Express and the queue was at least thirty people long and outside was an ATM with a queue of around 10. Not sure if there is a correlation, but having worked
