Leek is a market town, and hosts a range of markets to this day. The general outdoor market is held every Wednesday, while the indoor market takes place Wednesday, Friday and Saturday each week. Saturday also hosts an outdoor antique and collectors' market, and once a month on a Saturday the ancient marketplace holds an award-winning fine food event.
Leek hosts several popular annual events, including Leek Art Festival, Leek Blues & Americana Festival, and Leek District Show, which are attended by residents and visitors of all ages.
There are a number of historic local attractions in and around Leek, including Brindley's Mill - a mid-eighteenth-century water-powered mill which was owned by James Brindley, a canal engineer. Cheddleton Flint Mill and Churnet Valley Railway are also interesting exhibits of the area's industrial heritage.
For those who enjoy the outdoors, a trip to Rudyards Lake is well worth a visit, where fishing and walking are popular in the picturesque setting. A rocky outcrop known as The Roaches promises panoramic views over the area, while Tittesworth Reservoir is one of Staffordshire's most popular tourist attractions.
