Leeds’ new retail and leisure park The Springs at Thorpe Park opened at the end of 2018. Leeds is already the third best place to shop outside of London and with the opening of The Springs it has become even better. If you haven’t already visited the new £48 million retail park here is why you should.
Shop ‘til you drop
It goes without saying that there are a lot of big shops here. At 18,000 square foot, their Next store is their biggest and offers everything from fashion to home accessories. There’s also a massive 15,000 square foot Boots – one of the biggest in the UK – so you can pick up all your favourite hair and beauty brands. Other popular high street names at The Spring include River Island, TK Maxx, H&M, JD Sports and Fatface. For even more high street brands, Outfit brings together Topshop, Topman, Miss Selfridge, Dorothy Perkins and Burton under one roof.
Grab a bite
All that shopping can work up an appetite, and if you’re looking for a great choice of food The Springs has got you covered. Have a classic Italian meal, a glass of prosecco or an authentic Neapolitan coffee at Gino D’Acampo’s My Restaurant and his My Coffee & Deli Bar. If you fancy turning up the heat then head over to Nandos for their spicy (or not-so-spicy) PERi-PERi chicken and a choice of delicious sides.
M&S Food has moved to Thorpe Park too. Coming from Cross Gates, its new 13,000 square foot location means you can do a big shop and pick up a sandwich too.
There’s even a gym at The Springs. Pure Gym is open 24 hours and offers a flexible, no contract membership. With over 50 free classes a week and a well-equipped gym space, this is a great place to go and discover your fitness goals, or just burn off a few extra calories.
Watch a film
After a long day shopping, eating and exercising, head over to The Springs’ very own Odeon Luxe cinema. It boasts 10 state-of-the-art screens with perfect 4k projection and Dolby Atmos sound. Opening in early 2019, it will be the first and only cinema in East Leeds and the perfect place to watch all the latest blockbusters.
