Popular Areas to Move to in Leeds
On the back of our Britannia Turnbull’s Removals overall guide to Leeds published in earlier this month, we will have a series of articles delving into the city in which we have helped people and businesses with their removals for 150 years.
In our first article we will take an in-depth look into the areas in Leeds that are proving popular for removals in the past twelve months according to reliable outlets such as the Leeds-List, New Home Finder and the Sunday Times.
Highly regarded and one of two areas of Leeds to feature on the Sunday Times list of best places to live in Britain in 2014. The list used data from crime rates to school performance to determine the best quality of life. Chapel Allerton is a booming area of the city and despite being close to the centre of Leeds, Chapel Allerton’s centre thrives being filled with restaurants, bars and shops.
The only area of Leeds to feature in the Sunday Times’ 2017 list, Horsforth is an area that has long been seen as up and coming and now seems to have reached the top. With two lively streets of bars, shops and restaurants, affordable housing and easy transport links to Leeds city centre – its easy to see why Horsforth has grown so popular.
Roundhay is certainly seen as one of the more affluent areas of Leeds and there are clear reasons why. There are some stunning properties in the Roundhay area that are well stocked with nearby amenities on Street Lane. As well as having one of Europe’s largest urban parks, the beautiful Roundhay Park, on your doorstep and easy access to the centre of Leeds – Roundhay certainly proves its prosperity.
One clear appeal to the Leeds Waterfront area is its easy access to all of the hustle and bustle of what Leeds city centre offers. It also supplies easy access for so many of the companies that are based in the centre of Leeds. The Waterfront though provides a casual and picturesque area to live on the banks of the River Aire where new and classic buildings merge together for an ideal community.
Headingley is not only popular due to its student connections. The centre probably has one of the largest offerings of bars, restaurants and shops in Leeds outside of the centre and is often busy with people. Transport is also a key draw with easy links to Leeds, Harrogate and York as well as some superb housing.
Roundhay’s neighbour Alwoodley is just as popular and even more affluent. With some of the most expensive housing that Leeds and Yorkshire has to offer, the stunning housing and location provides the draw. This on top of the great local education and transport links with the outer ring road. Leeds city centre is close by but heading the opposite direction, you will immediately find rural landscapes – starting with Eccup Reservoir.← Britannia Turnbull’s International Guide: South Africa The Best Museums in Leeds →
