"The Henry Moore Institute is, probably the best 20th Century art collection outside of London."
Historic Leeds is undoubtedly Yorkshire's premier city. Flanked by varied and beautiful countryside, it also boasts more parkland than any other European city.
Leeds is the home of Opera North, the Northern Ballet Theatre and the West Yorkshire playhouse - the latter of which stages more productions that any other theatre outside London.
Following heavy recent investment, Leeds now represents a thriving retail centre which includes one of Europe's largest outdoor markets.
Few cities are as well connected to the rest of the country. For instance direct rail links with London take you from city to city in just two hours.
With enviable transport , culture and sports Leeds really does have a lot of offer. For more on living and working in Leeds, see: http://www.visitleeds.co.uk/
