Leeds Dock and why it's a great area to live in Leeds

Leeds Dock is fast becoming the most popular area for professionals to live in Leeds, due to its vibrant and exciting atmosphere all year round. It’s the perfect location for all the perks of city centre living, without the hustle and bustle that comes with it.

In Summer, you can enjoy the Waterfront Festival, which displays a mind-blowing array of independent street food businesses, performers and activities- suitable for everyone! Why not pack a bag and get sunbathing by the dock? Or grab a water taxi to take you into the city? Whatever you decide, Leeds Dock will have something going on.
