simulated street complete with shops and a pub. The Victorian-clad staff and interactive displays make this a fun and interesting way of learning about the city: far better than looking at photos and information boards.

The licensed restaurant is a relaxing spot to grab a quick bite and reflect on all that you have learnt. Check website for more details on current and upcoming exhibitions.

A wonderfully unique museum that allows you to walk through the old shops and cobbled streets of historical Leeds. It is full of interesting details and fascinating facts of the city. A must-see!
