History of the city
Originally beginning its life as a market town, following the Industrial Revolution, Leeds became more populated as the woollen mills became more productive. More recently, Leeds has thrown off its Yorkshire mill town characteristics. The area has developed into a thriving location, with a wide selection of shopping areas and commercial districts. Revitalised Wharf areas located by the river and canal, show off Leeds contemporary side, with ultra-cool restaurants and bars, terrace cafes and waterfront walkways.
