6 Reasons Why Leeds is a Great City for Families

As an experienced Leeds estate agent, we know that many buyers are looking to start a family in their new homes. Especially for first-time buyers, it’s vital to know that their new neighbourhood will be comfortable, engaging and above all safe. There’s a lot on offer in Leeds, and in addition to the hustle and bustle of this metropolitan city there’s also plenty of things to ensure a happy, healthy childhood. We’d like to show you a few of the things that make Leeds such a top choice for new families who need somewhere safe and comfortable to put down roots:

It has some of the safest neighbourhoods. The first priority of every new parent is safety; no matter how nice a location might seem, it’s no good if you don’t feel safe walking the streets with your family. Luckily, Leeds is one of the safest cities in the North of England, and around our local borough of Headingley there is very little serious crime; a quick look at police statistics shows that the majority of crimes in this area are non-violent activities such as antisocial behaviour.

Children can access some of the best education. As the North of England’s most metropolitan city, Leeds boasts some of the best schools in the area. In Headingley, our local neighbourhood, there are several outstanding primary schools; Meanwood C of E, Beecroft Primary School and Spring Bank Primary School. Getting a first-rate education is critical to a child’s development, so having handy access to (and being with catchment of) one of these schools is very useful.

There’s no shortage of things to do on the weekend. It’s hard to imagine a city with more going on than Leeds; there’s always something happening, whether it’s a festival, a hilarious new comedy, a craft fair or even just a visit to one of the city’s many parks. You’ll never be stuck for something to do in Leeds, no matter how picky your children are!

The countryside is within easy reach. Not many cities can boast such handy access to stunning countryside as Leeds can, but with the Yorkshire Dales just a short drive away it’s child’s play to get out for a weekend in the fresh air. When city life starts to feel just a little too confining, it’s great to have the option of hopping in the car and heading for the great outdoors.

It’s a melting pot of cultures. Leeds is a fast-growing city with a long heritage of welcoming in new cultures, and as a result is one of the most diverse cities in the North of England. This can be seen in the huge list of different eateries, the temples of many different faiths and the higher-than-average proportion of students with English as an additional language. This diversity is key to a child’s development, and exposure to other cultures will help youngsters develop into well-rounded individuals.

Child’s Play. Want to organise a party, or just fancy letting the kids amuse themselves for a morning? Plan a visit to one of the many children’s play areas in Leeds, like Tiny Toes or Monster Kidz near Headingley, and let them run riot while you relax with a cup of tea and a newspaper.

Green Spaces. There are dozens of parks scattered throughout Leeds, and on sunny days it’s very easy to take a quick trip out to some green space with the family with a picnic.

It’s not all for kids. Every now and then, Mum and Dad will need a night off from looking after the children, and Leeds provides all the entertainment they’ll possibly need for a night out. There’s no shortage of cinemas (both independent and chain), a vast array of fine eateries and restaurants and plenty of theatres, nightclubs and venues where they can take in a show.

As a place to start a home, Leeds has an awful lot going for it. As we’ve shown, it ticks all the boxes for safety and education which families need, whilst also providing entertainment of all sorts for children (and adults) of all ages.
