Well I'm from Leeds born and bred. And I have to say fairly - not just because I come from here - that Leeds is better. Dont get me wrong I also spend a lot of time in Manchester which I always enjoy. And it's definately more cultural than Leeds. There seems to be a buzz around Manchester that Leeds doesn't have. It may even just be the trams round picadilly or something! On the other hand, Leeds is bigger/better for shopping with shops being much closer together and so many of them! Also, Leeds nightlife is better with more variety than manchester. Again the nightlife is always within easy walking distance. In terms of housing districts and people there really is nothing in it really. Same as any other city. In summary they are both fab cities with the biggest problem being the horrible M62 that divides us!

Leeds is one of the most popular university towns. It has become over the last few years the uni to be at. The halls are pretty good but the areas they are in a very dodgy. So much so in fact that there are great big spiked fences around most of them with access restricted to key card holders only. The student scene is very big in Leeds as is the music scene though they both really seem to go hand in hand. Wax on started in Leeds and it is now a really popular dance night. There are some great little bars and clubs in Leeds but there are also a lot of super clubs and chain places. There are excellent museums and exhibitions and everything is very ...

I lived in Leeds until I was 14, and rate it very highly as a city. Had I not grown up there, I would have definitely applied to it as one of my university choices, as it''s a fantastic, vibrant city with lots of nightlife, and even more importantly, lots of great shops! It''s one of the biggest cities in the country (I think it claims to be the third biggest after London and Birmingham) and as such there''s always plenty of entertainment. In the large, and recently revamped main shopping streets, all the major high street shops are represented, and there are some brilliant arcades in and around the Victoria quarter, with more specialised boutiques, and plenty of ...

Okay, some backround, I am 24 years old, I am a self employed Estate Agent working out of my own branch with a small team of staff and I have recently moved to Leeds to develop my small company. The reason I moved to Leeds was a concious one, I used to live in Chester and I had become extremely bored, I am not a small City kind of person, I find myself rumbling around with not an awful lot to do, and as such I wanted to move somewhere bigger and better. This will be one of the few reviews I update, I have not lived here long enough to paint as much as a full picture as I would like. But believe me, if you are either looking for somewhere to go on a ... Read the complete review

Leeds is a truely great city! A northern city but don't let that put you off, despite being only 10 miles from Bradford, it will seem like another world. Modern, wealthy and buzzing, Leeds is a cosmopolitan and diverse city with lots to offer. With the highest student population anywhere outside of London (around 80,000) the city has a very young and happening vibe to it. Crammed full of bars, clubs and restaurants you will never have to visit the same place twice. For those looking for culture they will find several excellent theatres, including the West Yorkshire Playhouse, commonly regarded as the best theatre house out of the West End. For ...
