Leeds is a vibrant city with a fantastic selection of award-winning bars, restaurants and attractions. It's big enough and bold enough to have an eclectic mix of entertainment and leisure facilities but not so big that you'll spend all of your time trying to find them! Leeds is now the third largest city in the UK in terms of population but is also one of the greenest cities in the UK with over 65% of the metropolitan district designated as green space. There's great transport links to pretty much everywhere, the stunning Yorkshire Dales are less than 20 miles away and Conde Nest travellers magazine recently voted Leeds as the “UK's favourite City”. Who are we to argue?!

Leeds is home to some of the leading household names in banking and insurance and is now the 3rd largest manufacturing centre in the country whilst also boasting the UK's most diverse economy. It's a city of opportunity but also a city that likes to enjoy itself; wear out your shoes traipsing round some of the 1,000 shops in the city (and then shop for a new pair!), or take advantage of the only city outside of London to have its own repertory theatre, opera house and ballet company.

Here at Sugarhouse, we want you to enjoy and experience everything Leeds has to offer. We love offering suggestions and advice on where to eat, drink and play and pride ourselves on our knowledge of the city. Above all of course, we also want to help you choose where to live! Leeds has a diverse selection of suburbs and areas, each offering an entirely different experience to its' local residents. At Sugarhouse we'll try and offer you some advice on which area of Leeds might be most suitable for you and if you already know where you want to be, then we'll find you somewhere to rent in your chosen area. For a brief guide to the main areas of Leeds which we cover select the area you're interested in.
