Things to do in Leeds

Our Shared Ownership homes in Leeds offer all the convenience of a lively urban environment surrounded by rural beauty. Just four miles east of Leeds city centre, Cross Gates is a vibrant and popular suburb with easy access to York, Harrogate and the surrounding areas. Originally a Victorian manufacturing village, Cross Gates is close to the Yorkshire countryside with pretty villages, open green space like Manston Park—which has football pitches, a bowling green and tennis courts, Temple Newson Park, Primrose Valley Park and Leeds Golf Course nearby. Travel just a bit further and you’ll be in the breathtaking wilds of the North York Moors and the Yorkshire Dales.

Leeds is famously friendly but there are many other reasons to love it too. It has fantastic shopping opportunities like the upmarket arcades in the Victoria Quarter or Kirkgate Market where Marks and Spencer began in 1884. There’s world class food on offer from fine dining to mouthwatering street food—try Trinity Kitchen. It’s also a hub of entertainment with cultural attractions including the Leeds Grand Theatre, West Yorkshire Playhouse and the City Varieties Theatre. Museums and art galleries include Leeds City Museum, the Royal Armouries and The Thackeray Museum and Leeds is also home to the annual Leeds Film Festival—one of the biggest celebrations of film in Europe.
