We’re delighted that the Discover App is launchingh in our home city of Leeds and there couldn’t be a better place.

Browse in Kirkgate Market, the birthplace of Marks and Spencer and one of the largest covered markets in Europe! Treat yourself to the beautiful architecture with a walking tour of the city through the beautiful Victorian shopping arcades and then get yourself some refreshments in one of the many trendy bars and cafes throughout the city!
Or if outdoors is more your speed you can take a stroll around one of the biggest parks in Europe, Roundhay park and discover the (now dis-used) bear pit.
We really mean it when we say Leeds has a little something for everyone. Its long history can be seen in the streets and buildings and its embracing of multiculturalism is felt throughout the businesses, attractions and experiences available in the city.
Did you know that Leeds was founded as a local market centre and was incorporated in 1626? That’s a lot of time to perfect its offerings to visitors and residents alike.
Leeds started life as a village, and in some areas you can still feel this close-knit sense of community. With plenty of events from small crafts groups to large festivals it’s very easy to be social in Leeds!
We could keep listing all the great things about Leeds but wouldn’t it be better if the Discover App just showed you… everything in one place.
