Leeds is West Yorkshire’s leading city. It’s the largest and the liveliest, and it heads up a group of key towns and cities that are important players in the county’s economy. It’s a great place to set up your new home, with work and leisure opportunities for all the family.
On the go
Excellent motorway links from Liverpool to Hull and from Leeds to London keep the county well connected, and the network of local motorways keeps Wakefield, Dewsbury, Huddersfield, Halifax and Bradford in the picture too. Yorkshire’s historic capital, York, is only 30 miles away.
All the action
Leeds is ahead of the game in other respects too. It’s home to one of Europe’s largest city parks – Roundhay Park, home to one of Europe’s largest indoor and outdoor markets – Leeds Kirkgate Market, and it’s home to Headingly – the famous base for Yorkshire County Cricket Club and Leeds Rhinos Rugby League Club. That’s just a snapshot of a city that has leisure, shopping and sport well covered. Whether you choose to live right in the city, or in one of the popular suburbs, Leeds is an excellent choice on all counts, for all ages and for all interests.
This is a city in a convenient location for an escape to the country too. It’s halfway between the Yorkshire Dales National Park to the north and the Peak District National Park to the south. That gives you the perfect choice between the bright lights and all the action of the city centre and the open space and tranquillity of the great outdoors.
