This is an interesting place to go to walk along the side of the canal. There are some bridges to cross from where you get a good view. A water taxi goes up and down. Quite a few places to eat and drink.

past years have been better, with craft stalls, music, food etc. There were no signs advising that the canal path between the armouries and brewery wharf was closed for repair, or any signs to tell you how to walk easily between the two locations.

A beautiful sunny day and we decided on a lovely stroll along the canal. Very busy! Avoid the over priced bars, take your own!!

Out of the way and isolated from the rest of the city centre. Unless you look for it, most people are unaware that it's there. At times it is like a ghost town. Thirty years ago there was nothing here but decay and dirt. Now...More

We have been visiting Leeds for five years or more now, firstly with student children and more recently on business. We love the water front - there are miles of walking (or running) paths in both directions, lots of bars coffee shops and restaurants and...More

I walk along Leeds waterfront a lot, most recently last weekend when Leeds Waterfront Festival was on. You've never heard of it? Not surprising really, the advertising for the event is appalling, at least the advertised buses were running this year (the ninth festival). Lots...More
