Leeds is the largest city in the county of West Yorkshire, England and the most populous in the Yorkshire and Humber region. Leeds is the cultural, financial and commercial heart of West Yorkshire and the UK’s fourth-most populous urban area with a reported population of 1.8 million in 2013. Leeds was a small manorial borough in the 13th century, becoming a major centre for the production and trading of wool in the 17th and 18th centuries, then a major mill town during the Industrial Revolution; wool was still the dominant industry, but flax, engineering, iron foundries, printing, and other industries were also important. From being a market town in the valley of the River Aire in the 16th century, Leeds expanded and absorbed the surrounding villages to become a populous urban centre by the mid-20th century so is an ideal centre ideal for anyone looking for student accommodation in Leeds.
Fun fact: Leeds Castle is not in Leeds! Understandably, this may be confusing for some people, but Leeds Castle is actually in Kent, 250 miles away. But, don’t despair there is always the Kirkstall Abbey to visit. Dating back to 1152, it has plenty for all to see.
