Featuring a vintage aesthetic to rival even the most well-known streets of London, not to mention being considered one of Leeds’ most prominent hotspots for lifestyle, fashion and education – the Northern Quarter is nothing less than intriguingly exciting. What we find most appealing about this location is that it blends a comfortable mix of tranquillity with activity; with some sections of the suburban region offering peace and quiet, whilst others are as busy as you’d imagine (like the Grand Theatre & Opera House).

What is there to do in the area?

If you’re a student you’ll love the proximity to the local buses, cabs and other modes of transport that can take you directly to the nearby educational establishments. Now that we think about it, these modes of transport can be a great way to get around in general. Once you’re there, you’ll feel spoilt for choice when deciding on what to do. The main high street (North Street for your reference) plays host to at least a dozen bars, cafés and restaurants – and if you travel just a stone’s throw to the East, you’ll find a Travelodge, the Sony Centre and the well-known Forbidden Planet store.

There are even more shops on The Meadow – a main road that acts as an artery between the North and the West of the suburb. So, what about the most appealing of all stores; the beauty salons? Boy oh boy do we have some exciting information! It might all but guarantee that you’ll be booking a trip to this iconic region in the next few weeks.
