One of the great industrial centres of the nineteenth century, Leeds has reinvented itself over the last twenty years as one of Britain’s coolest cities, famed nationally for its diverse bar and club scene - boosted by a massive student population - as well as for its fantastic shopping and restaurants.
There are museums and art galleries, parks and grand public buildings, but what most people like to do in Leeds is to indulge themselves and have a really good time: whether that means playing giant chess, eating amazing Indian food for a fiver or partying and after-partying until well past noon the next day (on weekends at least).
Despite being one of the country’s biggest cities, central Leeds is very compact, making for a total melting pot of people. Shops selling vintage and hipster fashion lie just a couple of minutes from designer boutiques, and bars and club for all tribes of people and musical tastes jostle for space in the main nightlife strips.
What’s more, Leeds is undergoing yet more regeneration and building work, so there is much more to come in the next few years.
