As the cultural and commercial beating heart of West Yorkshire, Leeds is every bit the dynamic city you’d expect.
A transport hub with a modern, urban skyline and a confident place to do business. Leeds has left its industrial shackles behind to become a forward-looking city of parks, landmarks and 21st century towers rising by the redeveloped canalside. Come for everything from quality football and rugby league to world class ballet – and you’ll be left breathless.
As a spur off the principal East Coast Main Line, Leeds is well served by East Coast trains from London King’s Cross, as well as CrossCountry services linking the north and Scotland with the southwest. Leeds is a northern terminus of the Midland Main Line of East Midlands Trains from London St Pancras and a key stop on the Northern TransPennine route between Newcastle and Liverpool Lime Street. Meanwhile, Northern Rail operates a host of services to local and regional destinations including Bradford, Carlisle, Morecambe and Harrogate.

Leeds is heaven for shoppers, with probably the best shopping in all of Yorkshire and the Humber. There’s culture here, too, by the spadeload, with Opera North, Northern Ballet, attractive public spaces and a whole string of fascinating museums and galleries including Leeds City Museum and the Royal Armouries Museum.
The 17 platform station is one of the largest and busiest in the UK outside London, with 22 million passengers annually – and there’s plenty head for the enthusiast. To explore the bowels of Leeds station and the world beyond, head for what locals call ‘the dark arches’... a network of subterranean tunnels which support the station itself. Today it houses the Granary Wharf development.
