Victoria Leeds is a magnificently restored Victorian shopping and leisure area in Leeds city centre. It combines the 1990 Victoria Quarter west of Vicar Lane and the 2016 Victoria Gate shopping centre east of Vicar Lane. It includes a casino and major stores such as Harvey Nichols, Louis Vuitton and John Lewis & Partners. The most dramatic feature is the breathtaking stained glass roof, which runs the full length of Queen Victoria Street. At a staggering 746.9 square metres it’s earned a place in the Guinness Book of Records as the largest stained glass window in Britain. There are also three elaborately designed mosaic floors to admire, plus the polished mahogany frames and gilded art nouveau lettering which grace every shop. Victoria Leeds was recently selected as a filming location for period drama The ABC Murders (BBC), an adaptation of an Agatha Christie novel, starring John Malkovich and Rupert Grint.
