Leeds Minster

Kirkgate, Leeds LS2 7DJ

In medieval times it obviously made sense to build Leeds’ parish church down by the river, although these days that means it feels somewhat out on a limb, isolated down at the end of Kirkgate (ie, ‘Church Street’). It’s actually an 1841 rebuilding of the original medieval church, but it’s worth calling in to see the vibrant 19th-century stained glass, while all praise goes to the on-site refectory café where you can get beans on toast for a quid. In 2012 the church was officially granted 'Minster' status.
