Social Scenes
The Tannery is in the heart of a very popular student area, just outside the city centre.
Only 10 minutes’ walk from Leeds Students’ Union, where there are clubs, shops, and bars.
Leeds has a reputation for great shopping and some fantastic bars and restaurants most of which are conveniently located.
Kirkstall Leisure Complex is home to a Vue cinema, Virgin Active Gym, and various restaurants including Nando's.
The Tannery is conveniently located for Leeds Beckett University and University of Leeds campus, meaning whatever you’re studying you’ll always be close to your department. Also, you’ll have great access to the many music and entertainment stars who visit the Student’s Union every year.
Leeds is home to galleries, cafés, design studios, creative offices and performance and exhibition spaces. The Tannery is part of a vibrant area awash with activity; particularly a busy arts scene flanked by world-class retail and sport facilities, parkland and visitors' attractions.
Leeds has produced its fair share of household names over the last few years - such as Kaiser Chiefs, The Cribs and Corinne Bailey Rae - but what really makes this city tick is its independent scene, its innovative promoters having recently triumphed with boutique indie festival Beacons (in nearby Skipton) and warehouse-style club Canal Mills.
Touring bands stop off at the University of Leeds and the Cockpit; and with the infamous Leeds Festival, recently opened 02 Academy and with Leeds Arena, the city can also host the world's biggest and most popular acts.
Getting Active
The Tannery is right next door to Momentum Gym, which regularly offers excellent discounts for our tenants. There is also a Pure Gym and Virgin Active gym along Kirkstall Road, just 10 minutes away.
At both universities, you’ll find leading sports facilities for rugby, football, hockey, tennis and badminton amongst many others. These venues are generally available for students to use throughout the year, meaning you can always pop down for a quick game with your friends.
For fans of professional sports, the close proximity to Leeds United Football Club’s Elland Road stadium means you can see the team play just a short train journey away.
Rugby fans are spoilt for choice with both the Rugby League World Club Challenge winners; Leeds Rhinos, and the Leeds Carnegie Rugby Union, both based at Headingley Carnegie Stadium.

The property is on the route of the university shuttle buses, numbers 92 and 93, which run from the far end of campus to the train station at the other end of town. Leeds train station offers regular services to the rest of the UK.

Local Essentials
Just five minutes’ walk down the road from The Tannery is a Tesco Express supermarket, as well as a range of smaller food shops and takeaways. Just a short journey away is a large Morrison’s supermarket.
The town centre, just a 10-minute walk or a three-minute bus ride, is home to all the high street banks and shops that you’d expect in a popular university city.
The university shuttle bus runs from right outside the library and past the property, so you don’t have to worry if it’s raining or you’ve got loads of books to carry.
