The Grand Arcade

The Grand Arcade


The Home of Independents.

The Grand Arcade is one of the oldest shopping Arcades in Leeds City Centre, and it is well worth a visit as it is the only Arcade within Leeds which is full of Independent Retailers. It's a true haven for anyone who wants to shop somewhere different, and find something not available on the traditional High Street.

Built in 1897 and housing a recently refurbished W.M. Potts Clock, the Grand Arcade is in the middle of the Northern Quarter, with the historic Grand Theatre just around the corner.

The Grand Arcade is home to many retailers including Our Handmade Collective, a handmade gift shopping experience and My Vibrant Home, stockists of Annie SloanTM Chalk Paint. You can treat yourself to a meal at Roots and Fruits, the vegetarian cafe, or afternoon tea at Just Grand! Vintage tearoom. You can order bespoke original clothing by Redneck Clothing or visit Casa Colombiana for true Colombian coffee and food with a latin twist, plus much more..

And make sure that you take time to watch the newly refurbished Potts Clock knights strike the hour on their anvils and watch the revolving figures come and a take a bow!

Car parking is plentiful around the Grand Arcade - the Trafalgar Street car park is two minutes walk away and is very reasonable:
