Blackwells Bookshop Leeds

21 Woodhouse Ln, Leeds LS2 9HJ, UK – 0113 243 2446

Absolutely love this bookshop, pretty much every title there is something I want to read. Easy layout to find things and often half price used books.

Was suggested to go here for language books when I was learning Spanish, a great selection.


93-97 Albion St, Leeds LS1 5JS, UK – 0113 244 4588

Lovely book store structured on three floors, each with different categories of books that you can browse comfortably sat on a cozy sofa. On the second floor there's a nice café that offers vegan options too and has a friendly staff. Throughout the year they do several meetings with various topics, including foreign languages chats and other enjoyable activities. They often welcome writers to discuss about their new books which is something I really love. I definitely recommend to jump here whenever you find some spare time!

Love this place! Cafe staff are so friendly and helpful, even more so than the bookstore staff. I love the relaxed atmosphere I could spend hours here!

Forbidden Planet International

8 The Headrow, Leeds LS1 6PT, UK – 0113 242 6325

Very cool 😎 Mine and my girlfriends favourite shop to visit when ever we go to town. They have a massive selection of nerdy stuff available. The staff have always seemed very nice and the shop always looks good. Never looks low on stock. The quality of the one piece figures we bought in there were amazing and the giant selection of manga and comics are also amazing. It's easy to stumble on things you never knew before while browsing this store which you may end up loving.

I enjoy visiting the shop every time I come to Leeds. The selection is brilliant (especially when the place I love doesn't have a comic shop. The only problem was when I was being served, the cashier was more interested in his friend at the counter than dealing with me.
