Along as I Explore the UK
Leeds, United Kingdom
April 17, 2003
Cons : None
Yet another day trip!... since the trains to Chester weren't very
frequent, Michelle and I decided to do Leeds for the day. The weather
was decent, nice and sunny at the start & then the infamous
cloud cover moved in later in the day, but no rain.
It was an interesting enough city - it's a fairly decent size with
lots of old buildings full of character. We decided to check out
some shops while wandering around.
Granary Wharf was first - it's a market nestled in some brick structure
with canal tunnels with a medieval feel to them (see photos) Lots
of handicrafts were for sale - candles, gargoyles... the usual cool
stuff that I like to waste my money on.
Things were rather keyed-down since it was a Sunday and all. We
popped into an exquisite pub - it very well could have been a church
or something with it's vaulted ceiling & windows up high.
It really started to cool off outside & the sun was gone, so
we decided to train it home. Something different for a day - everything
is so accessible in this country... I love it!
Til next time...
