Often seen as Headingley's slightly more bohemian neighbour, trendy Hyde Park has quickly come to rival and then surpass Headingley in terms of student popularity and you can now enjoy some superb Hyde Park student accommodation.
Letting agents and estate agents in Hyde Park offer a mix of properties to buy or rent.
Hyde Park also now offers a great nightlife of its own with laid back bars, cafes and the popular Brudenell Social Club which has fast gained a reputation as a venue for underground and mainstream artists.
More importantly, you are just a short walk away from the city campuses of both the University of Leeds and Leeds Beckett University, as well as the city centre itself. There are few better places to spend a summer’s afternoon than the park itself, with sun-worshippers, rollerbladers, park runners, footballers and ice cream vendors jostling for position on the grass. All right in the heart of the areas of student accommodation.
The housing stock is mixed with a high number of huge Victorian terrace properties offering huge rooms and interesting features that lend themselves to perfect student properties. Estate Agents in Hyde Park have seen house prices skyrocket in recent years and tenant demand has also soared; rents can be slightly pricier than nearby Headingley and Woodhouse but are still affordable for those students desperate to live near to campus.
The famous Hyde Park Picture House is right in the middle of proceedings and one of the last surviving “Picture Palaces” in the UK. It has a reputation for showing unusual and award winning independent films in a truly atmospheric setting; definitely, one to add to your to-do list and a must for University Arts students.
Hyde Park Corner offers pubs, restaurants, and excellent cafes, as well as a host of takeaways and the well-established Hyde Park pub; all in the thick of the main student accommodation areas. Within the maze of terrace streets, there is a raft of other quirky takeaways, restaurants, and coffee shops.
