RETAIL & VISITOR ECONOMY
Leeds is justifiably famous for retail and the visitor economy
It’s a sector that drives tourism, creates jobs and contributes to our thriving city centre, and wider region. Our passion for shopping has us ranked amongst the UK’s top cities, matched by a booming food and drink sector, and a vibrant night time economy.
We might be a beacon for tourists, but it’s not just about attracting hotel stays and dinner reservations. That economic vibrancy contributes to our wider ambition to become a leading centre for economic growth and success, combining with our cultural scene, and key economic sectors to provide a broad economy capable of lifting everyone.
