The area around the Arndale Centre is bustling with shops, restaurants and bars – ideal for local living but it also attracts visitors from across the city.

Leisure & Attractions if Moving to Headingley

The name Headingley is popular with both cricket and fans of both rugby codes. Headingley stadium is home of the Yorkshire County Cricket Club and has also played host for the England cricket side in all forms of the game – most famously in 1981 for one of England’s most famous Ashes victories against Australia. The adjoining Headingley rugby stadium is home to Leeds’ rugby league and union sides – Leeds Rhinos and Yorkshire Carnegie. The Rhinos have grown to become one of the most recognised rugby league sides in the country and regularly draw big crowds.

Another famous attraction to Headingley is the well-known pub crawl through the heart of Headingley down Otley Road. Starting from Woodie’s Ale House and finishing at Leeds City Centre’s Dry Dock, the Otley Run is a popular bar crawl and often completed in fancy dress.

Jodie and Sarah were fantastic. They managed to sort out a storage unit for me straight away and even stayed after they should have shut to help me out. I would have been absolutely stuck if they hadn’t gone the extra mile.
It’s rare these days to get that level of service. MASSIVE thank you.

The staff are friendly and helpful (Huddersfield). My belonging are very safe and secure with loads of cameras and you can't enter without a person code. The storage rooms are nice and dry so all the stuff are safe from damp and mold ect.
I would definitely recommend and the price was great.
