What to do

Leeds city centre is fast becoming a major player in the north. It is the UK's third largest city and one of the largest financial centres (voted Britain's Best City for Business). Leeds also has the fourth largest student population in the UK which breeds a healthy music and arts hub (city alumini include Kaiser Cheifs and Damien Hirst). There's a great variety of venues from the vibrant cellar bars, the renowned Brudnell Social club, the 2,000 capacity O2 Academy or the 12,000 capacity First Direct Arena. Also renowed for it's shopping, Leeds has it's very own Harvery Nichols, John Lewis and the all-encompasing Trinity Centre.
