Leeds’ nightlife has a reputation for being some of the best in the UK, with a new wave of venues opening in recent years in repurposed industrial spaces. Shopping is a dream, from the 600+ independent stalls of the huge Kirkgate Market through to the more glitzy and glamorous options.

A huge range of festivals in Leeds and the surrounding area include the VW Festival, the Leeds Yoga & Wellness Festival and the legendary Leeds Festival. There’s also the glorious Light Night, which brings two nights of light projections, installations and art to iconic spaces in the city.
