You’ll be arriving in the heart of one of the great cities of northern England. Our office is close to the inner ring road, making it easy to get to all parts of the city and the rest of Yorkshire whether you’re visiting here on business or of pleasure.
You’ll be well placed to explore the centre of Leeds, which was once an industrial powerhouse but is now more famous for its shopping and culture. The restored industrial architecture mixes well with more modern developments to house a wide range of leading designer stores and independent boutiques. Along with a huge covered market and a collection of quirky bohemian stores, you’ll find Leeds has become one of the UK’s top spots for shopping.
Leeds is an acclaimed centre for culture, with the impressive Leeds City Art Gallery’s collection of 20th century British art being especially highly thought of. You’ll be able to find venues that cover the full range of live performances too, from the Victorian City Varieties Music Hall and the Grand Theatre to a serious contemporary club and live band scene, including lively venues like the Warehouse and the O2 Academy.
The Royal Armouries Museum is a surprisingly modern collection of exciting displays. Among the fascinating exhibits you can see real jousting or take a challenging military assault course. And you’ll find Leeds Industrial Museum is housed in a former mill building dating back to the industrial revolution alongside the River Aire. It’s a great place to get a taste of the old industrial Leeds.
You’ll find Leeds almost joins its neighbouring city, Bradford. This is another centre from the industrial revolution. You’ll see a perfectly preserved mill and its surrounding back-to-back terrace houses for the workers at the Saltaire World Heritage Site. The giant former mill building now houses an acclaimed art gallery featuring work by local artist David Hockney. Bradford is also one of the best places in the UK to try a curry at one of scores of authentic family-run restaurants.
Leeds makes a great base for exploring the rest of Yorkshire. Within a short drive you could visit the inspiring landscapes of three fine national parks: the Yorkshire Dales, North York Moors and Peak District. Other highlights of the region include historic York, the genteel spa town of Harrogate and the monastic ruins of Fountains Abbey.
Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
