Right at the heart of all the action and within walking distance of the University, it’s a terrific location for those wanting to enjoy the hustle and bustle of city living whilst still being close to campus.

A city rich in culture, you can spend your weekends exploring the many museums and art galleries in the centre and learning more about the history of Leeds during your time here! The Leeds Street Art Trail has pieces located all around the city centre for you to admire, so you might find a masterpiece right on your doorstep. For entertainment, you’ll have your pick of amazing theatres and venues like The Grand, O2 Academy and Belgrave Music Hall, so it’s easy to see the latest show or enjoy local gigs. 

Leeds city centre is also a fantastic location for shopping, with everything from large shopping centres like Trinity, full of high street names, havens for independent retailers such as the Corn Exchange and Kirkgate Market, and even luxury arcades like Victoria. If you’re a food and drink lover, Leeds is known as a foodie capital of the North and is home to a wide range of culinary delights, with cuisines from all around the world and options to fit any budget.
