Leeds

Nao ha’ muito para dizer sobre Leeds. E’ uma cidade aparentemente pequena mas que pelos vistos e’ a terceira maior em termos de populacao. Se calhar e’ tudo muito concentrado!

A viagem foi de autocarro por uma autoestrada cheia de neve e de acidentes que durou 5 horas mas la’ chegamos com a neve a ameacar estragar-nos o fim de semana.

O centro da cidade tem tudo numa zona pedonal e que ate’ e’ engracada mas quando se sai dai’ e’ tudo extremamente industrial, com chamines e fabricas a marcarem o horizonte.

Em termos de turismo nao ha’ muito para visitar portanto limitamo-nos a passear pelo centro e a ver as montras com precos mais baixos que em Londres e onde o Sunith ainda fez umas compritas.

 


I don’t really know what to write about Leeds. It seems like a small city but it’s the third biggest of England population wise. Maybe they’re all concentrated!

The coach trip took five hours trough the highway full of snow, ice and some car accidents. But the snow was there just Friday and it didn’t snow ever since.

The city centre is full of shops and services in a pedestrian area where we wondered window shopping (well, Sunith did some shopping). Tourist wise there’s not much to see and outside this centre Leeds in an industrial city with a skyline of chimneys.

  1. Leeds is a fantastic city – the people are amazing and there is a great shopping area. I dont agree with there not being much too see – there are some great attractions around this area. The Leeds Hotel we stayed in while we were there was pretty special as well. Cheers, hope you come back some day!
