For a perfect Leeds photo head to Kirkgate Market. On the northeastern wall of the market, at George Street, you'll see a huge colourful mural painting with the city's name.
Although graffiti is illegal in the UK, that doesn’t mean it’s not kind of art. And surely anything that brightens up the more industrial buildings and brick walls in Leeds. By the way, graffiti isn't a relatively new thing, it actually dates back to the times of the Roman Empire and Ancient Egypt.
When here, visit Kirkgate Market, one of the largest indoor markets in Europe. A paradise for buying fresh food, drinks as well as flowers and hardware. With the sights, smells and sounds of the market, Leeds Kirkgate Market has always been an experience since its erection in 1857. And it's hard to leave hungry.
