One of the north’s most vibrant cities, Leeds is fast becoming one of the UK’s real hotspots for business, culture and entertainment. Investment in the city continues to proceed strongly, with the recent opening of the Trinity Leeds shopping centre, and the soon to be completed Victoria Gate demonstrating that. To people asking the question ‘why live in Leeds?’ the city is fast becoming a real gem of the north. The population booms every September as students head to the three local universities, and as such a hub of activity, the city now boasts one of the UK’s premier reputations for careers. Whether you’re a professional considering Leeds, or someone just starting a career fresh from completing a degree, the city has plenty to offer the city worker looking to dwell in style.


As one of the biggest cities in the nation, it’s hardly surprising that Leeds is one of the largest business centres in the United Kingdom. The ample amount of office space within the city mean that many national and global businesses have established offices within the business district of the city. Professional services firms are rife within the city, with multi-national ¬†organisations such as Deloitte, Rockstar games, and hair care giant GHD all boasting offices in the city.


For residents of a city, a good selection of amenities is always high up on the list of desires, something which Leeds offers in abundance. With a vast selection of high quality restaurants, Leeds is seen as a real gold mine for cuisine. From the immediately attractive outer of The Restaurant Bar & Grill and Loch Fyne as you exit Leeds train station into City Square, to the penthouse feel exuded within Trinity’s newest offerings, Angelica and Crafthouse; Leeds has plenty of places to head if you’re looking to enjoy something with an element of style and class. Add in the wide range of quality chain restaurants dotted around Greek Street, The Light and the Headrow, and there really is something to take the fancy of every Leeds resident.


Renowned for nightlife, Leeds offers a great selection of bars to let your hair down, be it to unwind after a long day at work, or to go out and celebrate. Whether you’re looking to head somewhere for after work cocktail deals at Revolution, want to relax in a busy but calm ambiance at 1871, enjoy a craft beer at North Bar or have a real celebration on Call Lane, there are plenty of location to head to, whatever occasion is calling.

Entertainment & Shopping

As of March this year, more investment is going into shopping developments in Leeds and neighbouring areas than any other part of Europe. With the recent opening of Trinity Leeds, an assortment of big name shops, bars, restaurants and a new independent cinema housed in the development, there’s plenty of reason to head into the bustling city for entertainment. Couple the big and popular attractions of Trinity with the likes more low key, independent offerings such Roxy Lanes bowling, and there’s plenty to keep you entertained.
