Life in Leeds

As one of the most vibrant and eclectic places in the UK, it’s no surprise that Leeds is home to over 70,000 students. From our range of high street and boutique shopping arcades, or our electric nightlife to the serene open spaces and parks throughout the city, Leeds caters for all.

It benefits from a compact city centre which means getting around on foot is easy, but that doesn’t mean the city is small. Leeds can boast that it’s home to one of the biggest parks in Europe, Roundhay Park.
