Just booked for DH and I to go to Leeds for our anniversary. I was a student there for 3 years but only really did student stuff (and a LOT of shopping!)
What are the must do things for Leeds? We’re there Friday to Monday

In the city centre:

Eat street food at the market
The beautiful Victorian arcades
Corn Exchange
Leeds art gallery
Henry Moore Institute
Royal Armouries museum - I admit that it didn't really interest me

Further out:
Thackray medical museum - I highly recommend it
Kirkstall Abbey and Abbey House museum
Roundhay Park
Leeds Industrial museum

Loads of great restaurants. Iberica is my favourite.
Take train to Saltaire...less than 20 mins

Ooh yes, Salts Mill and Saltaire. Definitely worth a visit.

Saltaire is amazing. There was a good 'street food' type thing in a shopping centre when we were there, but have forgotten the details.

Rolands bar for cocktails, if it's still there.

The art gallery is closed at the moment but reopening in a couple of weeks so you might get in there. Decent theatres if anything grabs your fancy and you can get tickets. If you like music then there's a few indie venues around. Great bars. Trinity shopping centre is nice and has a street foody area.
