Leeds Travel guide
Leeds : Michelin's recommendations
Leeds owes its prosperity to the nearby coalfields and to the wool industry, and saw its population increase tenfold during the 19C. Today the city is at the centre of the fourth-largest English conurbation and has greatly diversified its activities. Whilst not boasting a great wealth of architecture, it offers a broad range of activities, from the opera to shopping arcades to cricket and a very lively nightlife.
