10 Reasons Why We Love Leeds

 4th November 2022

1. For its food - from cheap bites to sit-down meals, Leeds has it all on offer with a multicultural taste palate; If you fancy trying some Indian street food, check out Mowgli. Or maybe, a good Honest Burger is more up your street, we have that too located at Leeds Corn Exchange.

2. For its art - the one word to describe the Leeds arts scene is vibrant: from the Henry Moore Institute to The Tetley, Opera North and The Northern School of Contemporary Dance - there is literally something for everyone.

3. For its music - Leeds is a live music magnet. Check out O2 Academy for big acts or Leeds University Union for the next big thing.

5. For its shopping - the city is a fierce contender for top shopping venue status with many independents alongside all the big brands.

6. For its festivals - Leeds is devotedly diverse, from August’s West Indian Carnival to the Light Night Festival in October, this is a city that is festival focused.

7. For career opportunities - Leeds is home to many international businesses from Arla; the UK’s biggest dairy cooperative to Burberry; the clothing brand and everything in between, so Leeds is a great place to start a stellar career.

8. For transport - Leeds is great for planes and trains, but coolest of all is the water taxi, at just £1.00 a trip and with free city facts often thrown in, this is just the best way to travel the city.
