Enjoying The Leeds Social Scene
If you are planning on moving to the city of Leeds and have done your research into the West Yorkshire city then the diverse and popular drinking scenes have certainly cropped up. Wherever you are planning on moving to in Leeds then you are no doubt nearby to some great areas to unwind and enjoy. Here at Britannia Turnbull’s Removals we have chosen some of our favourite areas to have a glass of wine or a pint of beer in and around the city of Leeds.
The area is named after the road that sweeps along the southern edge of the city centre towards the train station and his home to probably the city’s most famous and popular drinking areas. Perfect for drinking during the day with cocktails at Call’s Landing or brunch at Shears Yard and then vibrant at night along the late opening bars along Call Lane – there really is something for everyone at this part of town.
Pedestrianised during the summer, Greek Street is surrounded by office blocks and company headquarters which give a professional image to some of the bars along Greek Street itself including The Alchemist and The Liquorist. It also has a number of restaurants that provide ample outdoor seating in the summer months when the weather is good.
An up and coming area of Leeds which has seen newer bars emerge around local favourites such as North Bar and Belgrave Music Hall. A side street called Merrion Street is also widely popular and has seen new bars pop up opposite some late opening favourites.
Nearby to the Leeds Train Station and the old Granary Wharf has appeared a new high brow and stylish area to drink. The area is ideal for the summer months by the water and is also popular with the nearby residence and office workers visiting the Water Lane Boathouse or The Hop. There is also real ale hot spots such as The Cross Keys and the home of the Leeds Brewery at The Midnight Bell.
As with many student areas, you can expect a large number of places to drink and Headingley in north west Leeds is no different. With the Headingley Stadium also nearby then you are spoiled for choice. Leeds’ infamous bar crawl the Otley Run runs down Otley Road visiting some of the best pubs and bars that Headingley has to offer.
North of Leeds city centre, Chapel Allerton has emerged as a popular area to move to. This is mainly down to the number of amenities, eateries and bars that have emerged. The end of Stainbeck Lane where the likes of The Mustard Pot, The Pit and Buca di Pizza has become a hotspot as have nearby areas such as Street Lane.
On the edge of the city is Horsforth which has always been well stocked with pubs and bars. The growth of Leeds Trinity University which has a campus in the suburb has added to this. Popular areas along Town Street and New Road Side have plenty of choice.
Heading out of the city towards the Yorkshire Dales, Otley has a rural feel despite being within half an hours drive of the city centre. Otley is famous for having a large number pubs in a small area with the unofficial figure being at seventeen. Otley has many real ale clubs and the Otley Trail is common with real ale lovers.
