To get to the upper balcony permission is needed for members of the public to enter.
Seeing as fellow bubblers JacquiK, and Lilian Marshall had travelled all the way from Blackpool to meet me, I thought I’d ask. We were given permission to go to the balcony, and got some absolutely cracking shots of the indoor Victorian wrought iron work supporting the glass roof, looking downwards towards the tops of the shops/traders.

Leeds Kirkgate Market is a market in Leeds, West Yorkshire, England located on Vicar Lane. It is the largest covered market in Europe. There are 800 stalls and Kirkgate market attracts over 100,000 visitors a week.
It first opened in 1822 as an open air market and between 1850 and 1875 the first covered sections of the market had been constructed after the market moved from Briggate. In the late 19th century, Kirkgate Market was the founding location of Marks & Spencer which opened in Leeds Market as a penny bazaar. New buildings were constructed in 1900 which included the Vicar Lane entrances. In 1975 a fire had damaged much of the building except the Vicar Lane frontage and the Market was refurbished in the early 1990s. Following this refurbishment Kirkgate Market was upgraded from a Grade II to a Grade I listed building.
