45mins from Conisbrough Castle
There were big constructions and it seemed to be a nice city, but we couldn’t make sure because it was very late. We took some night shots of the City Town Hall with the lights all lit up which was nice and one of my favourite photos of Elton with the hands of a statue trying to squash his head! hahaha too funny! Leeds seemed like a very big city, I would have liked to visit it during the day.
In Leeds, we parked our car and took some photos in the city center. By the time we got there it was dark. We were both annoyed because we had to pay for 10mins parking!
During the Industrial Revolution, Leeds developed into a major industrial centre for the production and trade of wool before emerging as a centre for commerce and education (Leeds University is well known) Leeds is the largest legal centre outside of London. The river flowing through Leeds is called the River Aire.
