If Carlsberg made cities, Leeds would be the closest thing to it in the UK for stag do’s. Offering everything you could want in a city with endless nightlife, activity centre’s and trendy places to hang out for a beer and have some food. This lively Northern city just oozes with style and urban glamour; with a little something for everyone you’re not going to be disappointed.
Quirky shops, cosmopolitan nightlife, stunning scenery and a buzzing student community with 83,000 students running loose across the city, really gives this city the edge. To top it off, Leeds is in the midst of a huge multi-million pound transformation, so it’s only going to get better.
She’s not just a pretty face though, Leeds has become the country’s second-most important financial centre after London… they might like to party around here, but they’re nobody’s fool.
Leeds is well serviced by trains, planes and automobiles…and buses and taxis and bikes. There is an extensive range of public transport options which cover all of the Leeds neighborhoods but you might be better off on foot as parking and traffic can be a bit of a pain in the city centre (unless you’re finding it hard to walk, then jump in a cab!). Leeds with all its bright lights and attractions covers a large area so you will need to think about transport to the main hot spots, unless you enjoy a stroll in the cold……
