It’s easily one of the most vibrant parts of Leeds and you’ll see why as soon as you start looking to buy a property there. Popular with young professionals and students alike, Headingley boasts a brilliant nightlife and great array of shops and facilities, so there aren’t many more convenient and, indeed, affordable places to live in the UK.
Headingley is home to three sports teams at Headingley Stadium, some of the area’s best bars and restaurants on Otley Road and some of the finest housing in the city of Leeds.
Moreover, you’ve got a very easy route out of Leeds to the great Yorkshire Dales, so your quality of life is likely to be dramatically improved with a move to Headingley.
Headingley safety and security
There are occasional reports of petty thieves targeting university-goers, but they typically tend to be in the areas that are heavily populated by students, such as Hyde Park and Burley. The more residential areas of Headingley enjoy safer and more secure communities.
Otley Road has excellent transport links to take you into the city and, of course, out to the Dales, so your commutes will be easy and your weekend jaunts will be better than ever.
It only takes 15 minutes to get to the city from Headingley and around half an hour to get to the quintessentially English outlying towns of Otley and Ilkley.
Find a property for sale near Headingley
Headingley is a relatively large area, so be sure to search around for the best property for you and your friends or family. The houses for sale nearer to Hyde Park and the university will have heavier student populations than those in Far Headingley, for instance, but you will be best placed to make a decision once you’ve experienced the areas for yourself.
