Leeds Kirkgate Market

The largest covered market in Europe



The largest covered market in Europe, Leeds Kirkgate Market is one of the city’s brightest shining jewels. Boasting more than an incredible 800 stalls, the indoor market marvel attracts over 100,000 visitors a week- and they all leave with a smile on their face and a bargain in their pocket.

With the construction of the originally open-air market’s roof beginning in 1875, Leeds Kirkgate Market has been constantly transforming for over 100 years. With major architectural additions, and the arrival of new traders, this lovely market seems to get better every day. Walking within its historical walls, you can almost hear the shouts of a century’s worth of market vendors past and present.

Leeds’ most precious market has undergone a recent, well-deserved resurgence, voted Britain’s Favourite Market at the ‘Great British Market Awards’ in 2017 for the second consecutive year. Their secret? Well, it’s not really a secret. Leeds Kirkgate Market thrives because of its diversity of traders, giving a platform to numerous nationalities who deliver freshness, variety and value for money with a friendly service in a vibrant atmosphere.

There’s honestly nothing quite like it!
