When I first moved to Leeds I found it hard as I had never even visited the city before and it felt miles away from everything I knew at home. However, over the last two years I've been determined to make the best out of the situation and now I'm a little bit in love with Leeds.
Over the past year or so I've noticed how many places to eat and drink there is in Leeds. From quirky places like the 1920's prohibition bar and Friends of Ham, to street food restaurants like Barburittos and Cielo Blanco, you will never struggle to find somewhere to eat an drink in Leeds. (I may do a top ten for my favourite places to eat in Leeds later).
Trinity Kitchen is also a diamond and such a brilliant idea. If you haven't been (why not?!) it's like an indoor food festival with new places popping up all the time. I'm a lover of trying as many new things as possible and Leeds is perfect for that, though I do struggle to not go back to the same place because they are all so delicious.
There is so much going on in Leeds from permanent places like The Light, Trinity, the museums or the Grand Opera to seasonal events like the Tour de France, the German Christmas Market and the Food Festival, there is always something to see and do come rain or shine.
Haha this is a bit of a weird one and not so much about what Leeds has to offer but one of the best things about living near such a big city is the internet. Speeds are insane compared to where I grew up and just about every provider is compatible with Leeds postcodes. This means on rubbish rainy evenings I can curl up with Netflix and get in my pjs without worrying about buffering or download speed.
