New to Leeds 2017: A-Z guide

You might have noticed, Leeds has been a bit busy in 2017. And we don’t know about you, but we’ve found it hard to keep up with all the new places and spaces that have opened in the city centre this year.

From fancy restaurants and bars, to shops, hotels, events and just general ‘stuff’ happening in our amazing city, we’ve come up with a handy A-Z guide to the new additions that have made Leeds such a great place to be in 2017.

They are specific to this year only, and mainly in or around the city centre – otherwise this would be a really, really long list. We’ll probably, definitely have missed some – so let us know!

Tomorrow is our final instalment, what have we missed for X and Y?


You’re better people than us if you can think of one?!


Yorkshire’s tallest skyscraper

The 40-storey tower will be built just up the road from the Merrion Centre in the arena quarter. At 126 metres it’s set to become the tallest building in Leeds / Yorkshire, with only Bridgewater Place (112m) coming close.
