    You rang, sir?
    Researching my walk it's quickly become clear that the publicists of Leeds are keen to promote it as the most up-and-coming, the fastest growing city in the UK.

    Chapeltown residents may not quite see it this way, but Leeds is now the 'Knightsbridge of the North', destination Harvey Nichols. All this hype got me thinking that if I'm going to stay there a week on my travels then I ought to test-drive this Leeds lifestyle to see if it's all it's made out to be.

    And so, before I could stop myself, today I booked myself a week in a luxury Leeds serviced apartment. Well, after slogging across East Yorkshire, meandering around Wakefield Europort and sleeping in pub rooms and Travelodges maybe I'll be ready for a little pampering.
