Over the last few years, Leeds has become a popular UK destination. Not only does it have one of the UK’s leading business schools, but it has also been named as the ‘Best University Destination’ in the country.
Due to the large student population in Leeds, you will find a wide range of bars and nightclubs. There are many venues to choose, from ‘real ale’ pubs to rock joints. If you prefer more cultural evening's entertainment, you can experience a night at Leeds Grand Theatre, with transport arranged by Leeds minibus hire.
Every year, the Leeds Festival is held in Bramham Park. Some of the biggest names in rock music perform there and the event is always well attended and often fully booked. Leeds also hosts a West Indian Carnival, which claims to be the biggest West Indian carnival in Western Europe and the Leeds Film Festival, which is the largest film festival in the UK outside London.
One of the finest catholic cathedrals in England can be found in Leeds, making the city a popular destination for tourists. Construction of the cathedral began in 1901 and the plans were drawn up by a London architect with an unusual neo-gothic style. Leeds coach hire is available for tours to the Cathedral.
Leeds is also the heart of the service industry in Yorkshire, with a number of big-name businesses calling the city home. This includes the only subsidiary of the Bank of England, as well as a number of call centres, banks and the BBC's Look North, amongst other media institutions. Leeds coach hire is available for executive and business purposes at a competitive rate.
