Leeds, England

A photo taken in Leeds, England last year. It is very obvious that this photo was taken during the night guys. The building with the tower is the Town Hall of Leeds. here is a little info about Leeds.

Leeds is located on the River Aire in West Yorkshire, England. It is the urban core and administrative centre of the wider metropolitan borough of the City of Leeds[citation needed]. The county borough of Leeds was awarded city status in 1893. Since 1974 city status has been held by the wider City of Leeds district. Thus Leeds, although commonly referred to as a “city”, does not have this legal status unless the wider area is being discussed.

Historically a part of the West Riding of Yorkshire, the recorded history of Leeds can be traced to the 5th century when the Kingdom of Elmet was covered by the forest of “Loidis”, the origin of the name Leeds. During the Industrial Revolution, Leeds developed into a major industrial centre for the production and trade of wool, before emerging as a centre for commerce and higher education, being the location of the University of Leeds, Leeds Metropolitan University and Leeds Trinity and All Saints. Today Leeds is one of the largest financial and legal centres outside London. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leeds
