Once the consultation has been carried out, a free no obligation written quotation will follow within 48 hours. Our quotation will outline exactly what is covered, as per your instructions and a price.

If you are not quite at the stage of wanting to receive a home visit you can still take advantage of our Guesstimate tool. Just complete the quick estimate form on our website to get an approximate idea of the costs involved.

Why Move to Leeds

Leeds is the largest city in Yorkshire and is one of the fast-growing cities in the UK. Having rose in significance as a major wool exporter during the industrial revolution, the city has taken on renewed prominence as the second largest financial and legal centre in the UK after London following large-scale investment. As such, the city’s economy is projected to grow by one third in the next ten years.

An infrastructure overhaul has seen regeneration of Leeds’ docks, radically increasing the retail, office and leisure offerings of the city. Nicknamed the ‘Knightsbridge of the North’ by travel guide, Lonely Planet, the redesign of the old shopping arcades has paved the way for Leeds Trinity shopping centre, which houses a large selection of shops, bars, and restaurants under an iconic glass roof. While investment into state of the art entertainment venues such as the First Direct Arena attracts the biggest names in music, comedy and the arts.

Modernisation has not done away with the charming Victorian character of the city and its proud industrial past however. The Corn Exchange is now just one of three corn exchanges in the country which operates in its original capacity as a trading post, albeit no longer corn.

The City

The city also benefits from excellent transport links, with its ring road system providing easy access to the centre as well surrounding areas. Leeds-Bradford airport is only 7 miles north of the city centre and flies to popular destinations all around Europe. Northern neighbours, Manchester and Sheffield are both within an hour by train and London just over two hours.

For those looking for a countryside escape, the Yorkshire Dales is on your doorstop, as is several great leafy suburbs, including Roundhay which contains over 700 acres of parklands and lakes.

With plenty of leisure opportunities and some of the most highly rated schools in the country, as assessed by Ofsted, Leeds is a fantastic place for raising a family. All the while, its excellent working opportunities, coupled with an invigorating nightlife, emboldened by a large student population, makes it the young professionals place of choice also.

Things to do in Leeds

For a fun family day out visit Roundhay park, one of the biggest city parks in Europe, with over 700 acres of parkland, lakes, woodland and award-winning gardens. The park is also home to Tropical World, where you can take a trek through the rainforest and experience tropical wildlife. Alternatively, why not enjoy a leisurely stroll around the grounds at Kirkstall Abbey, or take in the markets which occur on the weekend.

Step back in time to learn about the industrial history of Leeds from manufacturing textiles and clothing to printing, engineering and locomotives, which the city was world famous for at the Leeds Industrial museum. Located in Armley the museum includes collections of textile machinery, railway equipment and heavy engineering amongst other things.

Evening

For a night out in the alternative music scene, Brudenell Social Club is well worth a visit. A former working man’s club, the refurbished premises have played host to several acts that have gone on to achieve fame having played the circuit, including local boys, The Kaiser Chiefs, Franz Ferdinand and the Cribs, to name but a few.
