Leeds - A City Seeped in History
Leeds, the fourth biggest metropolitan area within England, is located in West Yorkshire, UK. Situated on the River Aire,
the alleged Roman settlement dates all the way back to the 5th Century. Since Medieval times the city has grown
in population and with the Industrial Revolution, Leeds became a prominent centre of textile production, iron foundries and
printing. Today Leeds remains one of the most important cities in Britain, with the largest concentration of finance, legal
and business services outside of London.
Bustling with energy, the city of Leeds caters to your every need. Catch an intimate concert with folk singer Laura Marling at the Brudenell Social Club or go clubbing to some of the best DJs in the world at Leeds University Union Building.

Aside from a business hotspot, Leeds is an education hub within the UK hosting student population topping of 250,000. With
several large universities including Leeds University, Leeds Trinity and Leeds Metropolitan, the thriving student numbers
spur forward the city's vibrant nightlife.
Music is an integral part to the city with venues including Leeds Academy and The Cockpit playing host
to numerous gigs in Leeds, whilst the annual Leeds Festival
draws a host of internationally renowned bands. Unsurprisingly for a city with such a strong musical heritage, there are a
number of famous Leeds nightclubs. Home of the UK's oldest house music event, clubs in Leeds include Mint, Mission, Space
and HiFi, alongside superclub favourites like Oceana.
An important entertainment centre for the North, boasting several cultural landmarks, Leeds theatres include the prestigious
Opera North and the Leeds Grand Theatre. Other notable Leeds attractions include Elland Road, home to Leeds Football Club, the grand Town Hall, Corn Exchange, plus the newly redeveloped
Millennium Square as home to Leeds Museum.
