On its new additions, Paul Pavia, Head of Development at Federated Hermes MEPC, the developer and asset manager behind Wellington Place, said: “As an already thriving community in Leeds city centre, we’re committed to continually creating a fantastic offer that cement’s Wellington Place position as the number one place to do business.

“We’re thrilled to be adding two fantastic options to our portfolio of delicious food outlets, with a nationwide favourite in Pret A Manger, as well as supporting a local, growing business with Sesame. We’re also proud to be introducing a dentist that’s committed to world-class dental care, adding to our long list of other amenities such as private medical practice, The Whitehall Clinic, and meeting and conference space at The Terrace.

“This new trio of outlets will bring great new benefits to the neighbourhood for both our businesses, and visitors, and we look forward to welcoming these new operators this summer.”

People visiting the new outlets will also be able to enjoy free weekend activities as part of Wellington Place’s Summer Sessions series. This includes its Wimbledon Weekender, with screenings of the Wimbledon finals on a big screen as well as free morning Yoga sessions from Yoga Hero and guided history walks.

Wellington Place will also be introducing ‘Fayre in the Square’, a fresh new take on the traditional farmer’s market combing food traders, live music and family-friendly fun.
