Headingley, Leeds

Headingley is a very student based community with tons of shops and bars to entertain yourself with.

What to do there: Headingley is a community which is driven by a large population of students. The community is certainly thriving because of the fast food restaurants and pubs that are popular with the students. It also has supermarkets nearby, such as the larger chain ones and the smaller independent ones. The only downside is that it is a 20 minutes' walk from the university, but the bus service is excellent with a bus towards the university every 5-10 minutes.

Everyone needs to eat, right? Obviously, so how about trying the Fisherman's Wife? It sells the best fish and chips in Yorkshire without a shadow of a doubt. It is a decent sized restaurant with top quality food and service. The pricing may seem like a lot, but then when you try the quality of the food, you will be surprised it's not hundreds of pounds more. The scampi and chips is borderline perfection, better than a chippy at the seaside!

Everyone likes an underrated gm of a restaurant right? Well how about trying the mint café, it is an elegant little café that sells Levantine cuisine and has vegan and vegetarian options. It is a takeaway café and has a restaurant for if you want to dine in. They do the most exquisite salads and even have an all-day buffet on Mondays which only costs £7.50. What a bargain!

If you know your stuff about Leeds nightlife, you'll know the Otley Run. The Otley run is a pub crawl that stretches a mile long, starting in Headingley. One of the more prestigious pubs in the crawl is The Arc. The Arc is a famous pub as it is on the Otley Run, but it is renowned around Leeds for its excellent hospitality and popularity with students due to its drink prices. The drink prices are most certainly not wallet busters and the beer on tap is fabulous. If you like a drink and like nice staff, give it a visit.

Another great pub, although it isn't on the Otley Run, is The Arcadia. It has the friendliest staff you can imagine and has a great array of drinks available, not just ales might I add! It is usually a quiet pub and if you don’t want to have a mad night in an overcrowded, sweaty club then visit this place. It is truly brilliant.

If you fancy a lovely relaxing day, watching the world go by with a lovely summers breeze going through your hair whilst sipping an ice cold drink, then go to Beckett Park. It is a large area full of beautiful plants and trees to make picture perfect scenery. If you ever want to relax after a stressful day or if you want a recovery day from a night out, visit.
