Our Top Vegan-Friendly Restaurants in Leeds

Veganuary’s mission to encourage more people to test out a vegan diet started back in 2014. In that first year, the charity received 3,000 sign ups. Fast forward to 2023, and a record-breaking 700,000 people took part.

Tempted to join the challenge this year? Whether you’re driven by animal welfare, your own health or the environment, we’re here to help make Veganuary as easy as possible. Check out these vegan-friendly restaurants and cafes at Wellington Place in Leeds.
