With its lively nightlife which surrounds natural beauty and an enormous student population, Leeds has to offer something for everyone in terms of academics and visitor places, and here are the reasons why it’s the nation’s top student city:
Leeds is affordable to live as a Student. Northern universities get you to bang for your buck, but this is very true in Yorkshire powerhouse Leeds. According to analytics from HSBC, the weekly average spend for a student in the city comes in at £212.40 (inclusive of rent in halls, foods, travel, study materials, and other expenses); this is less than even Manchester (£235.48), Newcastle (£222.58), or Sheffield (£218.05).
Talking about nightlife, small underground clubs Hifi and Wire play host to a plethora of great musicians and DJs, and have weekly student pub nights such as The Wire’s Fuzzy Logic to Mixtape Project at Hifi, to, the city’s great alternative/indie night.
The train station is serving country’s main stations such as London King’s Cross, Manchester Piccadilly, Birmingham New Street.
You will be getting coaches with Megabus and National Express to roam anywhere in the whole country at affordable price. You never want to leave Leeds once you’re here.
Leeds is a growing cosmopolitan city situated in the heart of Yorkshire so that you can have a city break and country retreat in Leeds. Outside the city, you’ll find stunning countryside, rolling hills, and a host of historical sites. Explore Fountains Abbey or Kirkstall or both which are built by the same sect of Cistercian monks and both worthy of time. Or you can head to Malham Cove and look out Gordale Scar, the waterfall that makes the visit worthwhile. All these places can be seen with small car journey away.
Street food made a significant comeback in Leeds. You can find it once a month on the city’s energetic high street, when the World Feast takes over and at Belgrave Canteen and Music Hall, where the ‘Street Feast’ is a regular event.
Leeds is no stranger to culture. The City streets are full of rafters with galleries and museums. Galleries range from Leeds Art Gallery, with its stunning collection of twentieth-century British art, and the Henry Moore Institute. No list, no matter how small, would be incomplete without a mentioning the Leeds nightlife. It has developed with the city, with famous nightspots like Call Lane which is expanding outwards to make way for new restaurants and bars.
