Quite small but lovely place. Lots of nice places to drink and eat, and there are two newish shopping centres

The city is very nice with a fantastic transport infrastructure, there are many places to go on nights out and while the food is often overly expensive, there are lots of nice restaurants/takeaways. The quality and value for money in terms of food isn't as good as neighbouring slightly smaller cities like Bradford, but there's still lots of options with generally good standards. As for shopping, it's fantastic. Within the town centre there is a multitude of places to shop, including massive new shopping centres such as Trinity as well as smaller centres like the core and merrion. There's lots of things to do outside of food and shopping, in terms of minigolf or sports like football and cricket with Elland Road and Headingley Stadium nearby. I would recommend Leeds.

Good night life, clubs for everyone's taste. Large shopping area, most shops are in the trinity shopping center. There is also a large food court in trinity with so many interesting options. Over all leeds is quite a cheep place to live however, accommodation and student housing is on the pricier side. Leeds is very student aware and most bars and restaurants offer a student discount. Freshers events are widely on offer, through out the day and evening, giving you opportunity to meet new people and learn about the city. There are also many options for activities that don't involve drinking, including, bowling, mini golf, garlleries and many one off events.

As a city, Leeds is a go to place for the overall experience. A variety of nightlife, accessible transportation, activities and shopping malls including high street shops are within the city centre. Not only that, there are two universities located just outside the city centre so it's 'perfect' for students.

My city is great because there is a high percentage of students amongst the residents leading to a never dull atmosphere. There are infinite businesses that take care of our needs such as never ending the count of bars, clubs, restaurants even luxury casinos which help a poor student cover his costs for a living. Also is relatively cheap in relation to what you get, ovbiously you have to know the good places, but on average is good deals for the poor student who struggles to mantain his account balance alive.

Bars and clubs within Leeds are really good, sometimes busy. But there is a wide variety, something for everyone. The trinity centre has clothing shops, technology and gadget shops, and even a cinema, meaning there is something for everybody. With food restaurants dotted all over Leeds, making it almost impossible to not find something you'd enjoy. The transport in and around Leeds can be a slight problem, do to the city always been relatively busy. I would always allow plenty of time to travel. There is always good connection links, train, bus and even a nearby airport. Overall Leeds is an upcoming, exciting city.

Leeds is one of the most fun filled cities, especially for students. There is loads of things to do from nights out to more relaxed activities (bowling, cinema, etc). The variety of different clubs and bars is outstanding, with the quality of food all over the city on a par. The large shopping centre, trinity, offers almost every popular clothing shop even some technology and gadget stores. The only thing that I wouldn't rely on is transport, with the centre and surrounds being so busy it can be difficult for transport, specially buses, to stay on time. I would always allow longer than anticipated for travelling in and around Leeds.

Leeds is great, not too big so everyone knows each other and not too small so there is something going on every day, great community. So many restaurants and bars to choose from with a massive variety.

Leeds is absolutely great for a night out, with clubs like bierkeller, pryzm and space that have loads of different themed nights. It also has a wide range of places to eat with completely different cuisines, Thai, Chinese, Italian for example. With everything a walking distance from the train station makes getting anywhere an easy task

Nice atmosphere with a variety of shops to fulfill your needs. During Christmas times seasonal markets such as the German market is put on show for people to come and get into the Christmas vibe. Overall rate the city.

Mostly everything apart from high end bars and restaurants are good value for money. New shopping centres have brought about employment and better shopping experience. Good range of restaurants. Nights out suitable for everyone

Loads of great places to eat and drink out and always something going on. However nights out tend to be either student based or local based and transport after 10pm is limited so you have to get Uber's everywhere which can be expensive if traveling alone. The city centre has shops for everyone but that's all it tends to have and not much else in the way of entertainment.

Nightlife has plenty of exciting venues and a variety of different music and events. Student budget friendly as there are many student nights with drinks and food deals. Shopping opportunities are great, with student shopping events in centres such as the Trinity with discounts and freebies.

As a student city, Leeds is one of the best. It's big enough that there's always something to do, but just small enough that everything is in walking distance (or a cheap Uber after a night out). Almost all of the shops and restaurants in the city have some form of student deal or discount. There is a huge variety of restaurants and cafes to fit every budget.

With bustling streets and many shopping centres, there are places for everyone. The people are as diverse as the incredible architecture in the city. I study landscape architecture and I've found Leeds to be an inspiring city for an artist.

Leeds is by far a city I love having grown up here! We have amazing food stalls and restaurants (and the besttttt German Market at Christmas time), with the trinity kitchen being an absolute GO TO. If you want a cheap night out then 100% go to Lloyds and Fibre (I've done a night on less than £30 many times - and that's including taxis). The backrooms good too. And walkabout for throw back music!!! Our shopping is realllyyyy good, although I'll admit it isn't the best in comparison to Manchester, for example, and that's why I haven't given a 5 star rating! You can get a 15 minute bus from the corn exchange to White Rose Shopping Centre and there's a train station 5 minutes away from Trinity Leeds so you can go just about anywhere for VERY cheap prices. We have loads of little vintage stores where you can get good bargains and it's little gems like that that make Leeds - Leeds! Leeds at Christmas time and Summer are the HIGHLIGHTS of the year with things like Gay Pride weekend and Carnival making town VERY lively and enjoyable. There's also roundhay and Hyde parks where you can go for a picnic and a stroll if you need a break from all the madness! I don't see myself leaving Leeds anytime soon!

A really friendly city where everything is close by. Trinity is a lovely shopping centre with a large variety of main stream shops and a food court with extremely affordable prices. The brand new John Lewis centre contains more high street shops and brands and is in a beautiful building. Eating out is nice with a large variety of cheaper to much more expensive restaurants. There are numerous bars, including several Wetherspoons, and Call Lane provided more upmarket bars. The nightlife is very good, with lots of easily accessible clubs dotted about the city. There are lots of things to do, such as a cinema in Trinity, Junkyard Golf in the Light and the German market which is in the city centre during Christmas. The transport is very good, with the train station located in th centre of the city and numerous bus routes going in and out of the city.

Leeds City centre is wonderful. So many places to drink and eat, with no shortage of entertainment. Even better than that is the shopping experience with trinity and white rose just outside of the city centre.

Leeds is a lovely city. It is full of students, making it a very youthful city. The nights out are great and the food is wonderful. There are plenty of vegan options. The parks are very nice and there are lots of lovely places to walk and see animals.
