Leeds Corn Exchange

Leeds Corn Exchange


Standing proud amongst the vibrant shops, cafés, restaurants and bars of the high street is Leeds Corn Exchange, a stunning Grade I listed oval building, now home to some of Leeds’s finest independent boutiques and cafes.

Located in the heart of historic Leeds, alongside Kirkgate - the city’s oldest street - Leeds Corn Exchange has been a magnet for visitors for more than 150 years. Designed by world-renowned architect from Hull, Cuthbert Brodrick, Leeds Corn Exchange opened in 1863 and operated as a traditional Corn Exchange until the early 1990s. Throughout the late 19th century, the building was a bustling centre for the exchange and sale of corn, wheat, barley, hops, cake and flour and also was host to a farmers’ market and regular leather fair. Neighbouring Kirkgate Market, Leeds Corn Exchange played a pivotal role in the day to day life of Victorian Leeds.

Today Leeds Corn Exchange has come full circle and is once again a thriving retail hub, with around 30 independent designer-makers, specialist retailers and foodie outlets now trading beneath the breath-taking domed roof. Leeds Corn Exchange is a treasure trove of original, modern finds and regularly hosts events and fairs, specialising in vinyl, quality crafts, vintage, food and drink.
