Often seen as Headingley’s slightly more bohemian neighbour, trendy Hyde Park has quickly come to rival Headingley in terms of student popularity and 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.
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. Leeds Uni and Leeds Beckett are only a short walk away, and bustling Hyde Park corner offers a strip of bars and unique restaurants. 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. It really is an area full of character.
And let’s not forget Unity Day. Held once a year in Hyde Park, it’s aim is to unite the different communities in Leeds through a relaxed, friendly and safe environment whilst showcasing the cities diverse cultures for art, music and performance! Keep an eye out on new businesses popping up on every corner.
