Beautiful building in Leeds

Live in Leeds

Good music venues are in abundance in Leeds. Depending on the day of the week, you'll find excellent at Belgrave Music Hall, Hifi, Distrikt Holbeck Underground Ballroom and Beaverworks. 

For those seeking refreshment, Northern Monk Brewery offers a good tipple, while Friends of Ham caters for those who need a quiet date spot. Temple Coffee & Donuts, around the corner from the studios also comes highly recommended for its namesakes.

If you're in need of some visual inspiration, one of Leeds' finest architectural highlights is the Leeds Corn Exchange with its domed wooden roof resembling the hull of a boat.

Fans of the great outdoors should head to Willow Field, a five-minute walk from the studios, or Roundhay park — one of the biggest city parks in Europe.
