about leeds

It’s easy to see why Leeds was ranked among the ‘501 Must-Visit Cities’ in the Rough Guide. The UK’s third-largest city is brimming with history, beauty and opportunity which is why it is known as the capital of culture, shopping and education in West Yorkshire. It became hugely popular after the Tour de Yorkshire was launched there in 2014.

The city’s three universities host over 250,0000 students


  • Leeds railway station has 17 platforms and was used by 24.5 million people in 2016 – two-and-a-half million more than the year before.
  • Architect Cuthbert Brodrick won £200 for his design for what would become Leeds Town Hall.
  • No one seems to actually know how big Leeds is. A national newspaper recently put the population at 430,000, while Bargain Hunt presenter Tim Wonnacott described it as the UK’s ‘ninth biggest city’ when the show was filmed here. Leeds metropolitan district’s current population of 798,800 actually makes it the second biggest in England after Birmingham.
