Harvey Nichols reopens

As lockdown begins to ease, everyone is focused on helping visitors come back to Leeds city centre safely and this handy guide has everything from safety measures to car parking. Plan your trip.

2020 has been a rollercoaster of a year, but you can end it on an almighty high because we’re giving away a fantastic festive shopping spree!

After weeks in lockdown, you’d be forgiven for falling a little behind on your Christmas shopping, but fear not, because the shops will reopen on Wendesday 2nd December 2020. They have a raft of measures in place to keep you safe, so you can whizz through your list and get everything safely stowed away under the tree. From toys to toiletries, gadgets to glad rags, you can get everything you need, right here. Don’t forget to visit the ‘Dear Leeds’ installation by James Glancy on Briggate, which is guaranteed to put you in the Christmas spirit. #WelcomeBacktoLeeds

Get ready to splurge because we’re funding your shopping!

If you’re our lucky winner, you’ll have Christmas all wrapped up because you’ll bag £1,000 to spend across eight Leeds stores and shopping centres. For the ultimate indulgence, head to Harvey Nichols where your £250 spree comes with a dedicated personal shopper. Cosy up in a private room supping drinks while they whizz around the store, picking out the perfect pieces, all tailored to your personal tastes.

You won’t have to go far for your next splurge because you’ll get £200 to spend in Victoria Leeds. Wander the hallowed halls of the VQ, weaving in and out of designer boutiques like Vivienne Westwood, Ted Baker and Molton Brown as you decide how to spend your prize. But be sure to visit Victoria Gate before you make your final decision because it’s full of fancy finds like Anthropologie, Tommy Hilfiger and Nespresso.

No shopping spree would be complete without a trip to John Lewis, so we’re giving you £100 to spend in their landmark store in Victoria Gate. From designer fashion to beauty best buys, home essentials to the latest gadgets, it’s packed to bursting with the season’s must-haves. Treat yourself or get a little last-minute Christmas shopping done – after all, there’s something for absolutely everyone.

We’re not even done yet! The Hip Store is getting involved too. As one of the UK’s leading independent fashion stores, they’ve got an unrivalled collection of designer brands – and our winner will get their hands on £100 of gift vouchers. Meanwhile, over at Merrion Centre, you’ll have £50 to spend at one of 24 independents. Capture the joy of Christmas with Dale Photographic, top up your record collection at Jumbo or test your tolerance at The Chilli Shop.

More shopping awaits at Trinity Leeds, where you’ll have £100 to spend wherever you wish. Pick up pressies for the kids at Hamley’s, indulge your love of chocolate at Lindt or update your wardrobe at your favourite high street brands. Topshop, Next, River Island – you name it, they’ve got it. Don’t forget to nip into M&S. There’s another £100 to spend here, so you can scour the shelves for must-haves or treat yourself to a festive feast in the Food Hall.

Bringing this almighty shopping spree to a close are two high street favourites, both in The Core. You may not be able to get your hands on that elusive Playstation 5, but you’ll still get £50 to spend on everything from consoles to controllers at Game. And if you need a post-lockdown fashion fix, head to Matalan where your £50 prize will get you an amazing stash of new season looks.
