It's sort of a running joke at the moment about a day trip to Leeds in our house. When I wanted to go out for the day a few weeks ago to Leeds the boy wouldn't let me. His exact words if I remember correctly were 'there is nothing in Leeds why do you want to bother going there'. Now I've never been to Leeds and really wanted to go. I don't actually know why but once I've decided on something there ins't much that will change my mind.
So off we set and even though we made one slight unexpected detour we made in one piece in reasonable time. Now one thing about Leeds and about any city centre is the the parking is expensive and I think we picked the most expensive car park. We parked in The Light which is pretty much in the heart of the city and cost £8.50 for over 6 hours. There is a park and ride some where but as we got a little bit lost we just parked at the first one we came across. It was really nice in The Light centre with a nice looking pub and few places to eat and even a cinema but we didn't really spent any time there as the weather was nice and we wanted to be outside.

I choose the Lancashire Sausage with mash and onion rings and the boy had traditional fish and chips and oh it was good. I really enjoyed this and if your out and about in Leeds and fancy an amazing pub lunch then I would recommend it. It is a good ten minuets walk from the main shops but its defiantly worth it and is a nice place for a sneaky afternoon drink. I think it cost about £20 (as I didn't pay) for the two of us and a couple of soft drinks each.
One of the biggest and by the looks of it the most popular shops in Leeds is the Harvey Nichols. It seems smaller then the Manchester one but I really enjoyed having a good nosey around doing some dream shopping. If you are going into Leeds during the week they have a nice restaurant on the top floor that has a nicely priced set menu for lunch. The beauty hall was literately manic I've never seen the Manchester one this busy even if it was sale time.
