Probably the first square you will come to in Leeds if you are arriving from the M602 or by train. It isn’t very pedestrian friendly as it is always busy with traffic. A few bars and eateries around the rim of the square but there...More

I love coming out of the train station and into city square, it's always bustling and full of life. The architecture is amazing too.
