Why Leeds...

Leeds is easy to explore and ripe for discovery with its compact and vibrant city centre, attracting visitors for its world class live music, sport, culture, heritage and food and drink scene.



From its historic architecture to its reputation for culture and retail, there’s always something new to discover in Leeds.



A city rich in industrial heritage, Leeds is well known for its architecture. Whether it’s the historic Leeds Kirkgate Market, home to a number of local traders or the first direct arena, which sees huge artists from across the globe perform every year, its unique skyline offers something for everyone, from history buffs to fans of modern art.

Those looking for taste of rural life will also feel at home in Leeds. Only a stone’s throw away from the magnificent Yorkshire countryside; you can explore the Yorkshire Dales or visit a number of historic stately homes and gardens, including Harewood House, which dates back to the 1700s.

 But it’s the mix of old and new that makes Leeds such a vibrant city.


With a modern appetite for retail and night life, Leeds is known for its thriving independent shopping scene, as well as trend setting bars and restaurants
