The local area guide to living in Leeds

Leeds is called the capital of West Yorkshire, and boasts the second largest legal, business, and financial services sectors in the UK. Leeds became an important centre for cloth production during the Middle Ages, a reputation that it maintained until the 20th century, when industry in the city shifted towards engineering, printing, and chemical manufacturing.

With several universities in the city, it’s unsurprising that Leeds is one of the most densely populated in terms of students. Over 60,000 students live within the city – making it the fourth largest grouping in the UK.

In the post-war years there was a general decline in manufacturing, but the city has made a concerted effort to avoid the post-industrial malaise experienced by many cities. In recent years, it has become home to many telephone banking services, precipitating a boom in its service and retail sectors.

Information about the local residents

In the 2011 census the city of Leeds itself had a population of nearly 800,000, whilst the Leeds-Bradford Metropolitan area within which it lies had around 2.3 million people. The city has a diverse ethnic make up, with only 85% of the population being white. The rest of the population’s make-up is approximately 8% Asian, 3% mixed race, 3.5% black, and a little over 1% of people have Arabic or other ethnic heritages. Leeds has the third largest Jewish community in the UK, after those of London and Manchester.

Nearby schools

Leeds has an excellent reputation for good quality primary school teaching, with Leeds and Ebor Garden Primary School and St Peter’s Church of England Primary school being rated as ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted. The area has a surprisingly small number of secondary schools, but John Jamieson School and St Mary’s Catholic High School are rated highly, and Roundhay School is ‘outstanding’.

Leeds is home to an impressive four universities; Leeds Metropolitan University, Leeds Trinity University, the University of Law, and the University of Leeds, which is one of the world’s top universities and part of the Russell Group of the UK’s leading universities.

Getting around

Leeds has one of the UK’s busiest stations, with 50,000 passengers and 900 trains passing through each day. This means the city has excellent rail links to all parts of the UK, as well as smaller commuter trains that serve the city itself. Leeds is lucky to also have an excellent bus service, which comprehensively covers the Leeds-Bradford Metropolitan area.

Many roads, including the A660, A62, A63, A64, and A65 start in Leeds, and the M1 and M62 meet south of the city, giving it excellent links to all parts of the UK road network. Part of the inner city has been pedestrianised, leading to several ring roads being constructed in and around it-=

Leeds Airport lies ten miles outside the city and serves countries in Europe, the Americas, Africa, and Asia.

Local shops

Leeds is the central hub for shopping in Yorkshire and has many indoor retail centres, including Trinity Leeds, the Corn Exchange, and the Victorian Quarter. Leeds also boasts the historic Kirkgate Market, which is part of a Grade I listed building. It is one of the largest covered markets in Europe and is open six days a week. There is also the Grand Arcade, which is one of the oldest shopping arcades in the city, and is packed with independent shops and boutiques.

Leeds also has an impressive array of museums, galleries, theatres and cinemas, and supports a thriving live music scene, including the famous Leeds Festival. It hosts many other annual festivals including the Leeds Carnival, the Leeds Asian Festival, the Leeds International Concert Season, and the Otley Folk Festival.
