Leeds city centre is the central business district of Leeds, England. While the city centre has no formal definition, it may be taken as roughly bounded by the Leeds Inner Ring Road to the north and the River Aire to the south.

Leeds city centre can arguably be separated roughly into five areas or quarters:

  1. The Civic Quarter is the area at the north of the city centre, roughly north of the Headrow. It is home to the Leeds Magistrates and Crown Courts.
  2. The Shopping Quarter is the area which extends south from the Headrow to Boar Lane. Many of city's largest shops are found here. Like any major city the shopping district is home to both major international chains and independent shops.
  3. The Cultural Quarter is situated in the east of the city centre. Landmarks here include the BBC building, the West Yorkshire Playhouse, and the Leeds College of Music.
  4. The Financial Quarter is centred around the Georgian Park Square, one of the green spaces in Leeds city centre. The railway station lies on the fringes of the financial district.  In the areas around Park Square, some of Leeds' finest Georgian architecture can be seen; the relative age and small size of the buildings in this part of the financial quarter make it popular with smaller companies, in particular small legal and clerical companies such as solicitors and management consultants.
  5. The Skyscraper Quarter is the location for much of the extensive building works currently in Leeds. Many of the city's tallest buildings can be found here, such as Bridgewater Place, currently the tallest building in Leeds.
