There’s simply not enough space to sing the praises of central Leeds and there is a super range of student and professional accommodation in Leeds city centre; wonderful buildings, more bars than you can shake (an increasingly blurry!) stick at, some of the North of England’s finest restaurants, theatres and performing arts venues and one of the most popular city centre shopping venues outside of London.
Leeds is a hugely diverse and ever-changing city so our advice is simply to get yourself amongst it! For student and professional accommodation in Leeds, there are various separate sub-areas around the city centre, including popular spots overlooking the river and near the two university campuses located near the outskirts. The latter provides a great location for those University students seeking student accommodation in Leeds city centre and wanting to get to lectures in a hurry, whilst professional renters will enjoy the proximity to Hyde Park and the university inspired nightlife, whilst still keeping the central amenities within walking distance.
The city centre itself has seen a huge boom in recent years with companies such as Asda, Jet2 and First Direct basing their head offices here as the city has also established itself as a centre for finance, banking and commerce. Leeds has a growing creative hub, recently joined by Channel 4 setting up its new HQ. Accommodation in Leeds has also boomed, with new housing developments popping up across the city.
New developments, bars and restaurants emerge almost weekly and the newly built shopping and leisure venues of the Trinity Leeds shopping centre and Victoria Gate development have further enhanced the retail and leisure options on offer. With a vibrant student population, bustling economy, large central bus and train stations (and amazing countryside just a short trip away), a thriving business hub and a real buzz about the city, Leeds is definitely one of the best places to live in the UK!
