Known as the unofficial capital of Yorkshire, Leeds is the largest city in Yorkshire and The Humber with a population of around 793,000. Leeds played a key role in the Industrial Revolution and was once known for its wool production, textiles and trading. Today, as the UK's fourth-largest city, Leeds is the region's cultural, financial and commercial centre with the most diverse economy in the country and the largest financial district outside of London. Its main industries today span finance, retail, leisure, construction, manufacturing and the creative and digital industries.
The city is well-known for its wide range of shopping opportunities, including the newly developed Victoria Gate and Trinity shopping centres, in addition to the Merrion Centre, St John's Centre and The Core. Leeds is also home to one of Europe's largest indoor markets, Kirkgate Market. Leeds is renowned for its fantastic nightlife and has an array of great pubs, bars, restaurants and cafes to choose from, in addition to leisure venues and attractions such as museums, galleries, theatres and music venues.
The city is also host to some of the UK's biggest festivals including the West Indian Carnival, Leeds Pride, Leeds International Film Festival and most notably, the Leeds Festival which is one half of the huge scale Reading and Leeds Festival. Leeds is located in close distance to the Yorkshire Dales National Park, with plenty of green spaces and outdoor parks to explore on its doorstep, including Otley Chevin and Roundhay Park, which is one of Europe's largest city parks.
There are five universities in Leeds - the University of Leeds, Leeds Beckett University, Leeds Trinity University, Leeds Arts University and the University of Law. Around 72,000 students are currently enrolled across all five universities, making Leeds a hub for a vibrant and diverse student experience.
Leeds is a lively and vivacious city, giving advertisers endless opportunities when it comes to raising their profile in Yorkshire.
