A getaway holiday from London to explore other cities in England.
Leeds which I recalled was a 4.5 hour by bus from downtown London. Took Megabus, the early you buy, the good deal you’ll have out there.
It’s the birthplace of Mark & Spencer, home of the worldwide British retailer. There is a M&S Heritage Museum in University of Leeds, unfortunately wasn’t open the day I visited.
I didn’t know the city that much except knowing have the well-known University of Leeds, where my friend was studying there, other from that, I read articles from here, who are my guides in exploring the city. My friend said “every Taiwanese student studying in Leeds all have this book.” Didn’t saw the book lying on her table until the last few day, it’s alright, we still gone on adventures.
We went to the WHARF, which is written on the book, as word written, yes that is what it is, but what’s more was it felt like we went the wrong way, where we went seems like walking in a underwater ground, which was apparently above the ground, eventually we did see the big block words Granary Wharf and knew we were in the right place, whew, there’s always some goosebumps along the way in journey when aren’t sure where you are at.
The golden mailbox is to celebrate an 2012 Olympic gold winner from Leeds, as you see there are 2 golden mailboxes, there were 2 golden winner from Leeds in the 2012 Olympics.
There is the main street where basically brands can found there, so no worries for ladies who are anxious about it might be a small town, bloody it’s not, and there is Asian market here! My friend studying in Sheffield now said “LEEDS IS BIG!” And yes, this depends on where you just came from or where you are settling at the moment.
這裡是英國零售商巨匠Mark&Spencer的誕生地，而在里茲大學(University of Leeds)裡有M&S 紀念博物館，可惜我去的那一天沒有開。
我們去了書上寫的WHARF，顧名思義是碼頭，但我們怎麼走都覺得好像走錯路一樣，在地上的地下水到行走，最後終於看到Granary Wharf 幾個大字才鬆了一口氣，但的確嚇了我們一身汗，不知身在何處。
