UNIVERSITY AREA – NORTHEAST CENTRAL:
- Sky Plaza, Broadcasting Tower, First Direct Arena, Clay Pit Lane, Queen Square, churches, University of Leeds, Beckett University


The University area is situated in the Northeast end of the city centre. Here you find both futuristic buildings (around Beckett University) and historic university buildings and churches (around University of Leeds, established 1904). Leeds has four universities totally (the other ones are Trinity University and Art University). The second tallest building, Sky Plaza (or The Plaza), a 36-storey white modernist skyscraper from 2009 that contains dormatories and offices, can be found here. Opposite, on Clay Pit Lane, is the futuristic First Direct Arena, and some postmodern buildings. The 23-storey Broadcasting Tower that houses student apartments, also from 2009, is nearby. Opal Tower, also in the area, is a residential highrise with diagonal roofs that was built in 2008, and is the 3rd tallest building in Leeds. Central Village Tower, just West of the university of Leeds, is a modernist 23-storey residential skyscraper for students, built in 2014.

There are several churches with fairly high spires along Woodhouse Lane, that goes through the University of Leeds. One was converted into a night club, simply called the Church.
Parkinson Building (also on Woodhouse Ln) is an imposing white art deco building featuring a campanile (bell tower) in the middle, that is one of University of Leeds main buildings. It is grade II listed and was built 1938-1951. The Great Hall (not shown on the pictures) is a large gothic red brick building from 1894, also a grade II listed building, that is connected to the Parkinson Bldg. The park St George's Field and the even larger park Woodhouse Moor (known for the Queen Victoria Statue) are situated just West of the university area.

WELLINGTON STREET, PARK SQUARE
- Russell Scott Backpackers, Lisbon Square, St Paul's Street

Park Square is a beautiful, quiet, green square with red brick residential Georgian town houses. It is designed like a Georgian park and is situated in the financial district. From there you can see the tower of the Town Hall. The square resembles some American cities, like Philadelphia and Baltimore. Wellington Street is a busy street that goes from City Square, where the Central Station is, to Lisbon Square (near Park Square), where our hotel was. Crowne Plaza Hotel is also in this area. St Paul's Street is a side street to Wellington, with beautiful restored former industrial buildings, now mostly office buildings. In an industrial area to the West of Lisbon Square is the Emmerdale Studio Experience, where recordings of this famous soap can be experienced.

LEEDS BY NIGHT
- City Square, Boar Lane, Wellington Street, Bad Apples, Trinity Leeds, Holy Trinity Church, Victoria Gate Russel Scott Backpackers Hostel

Leeds is a nice city. I stayed there over a Friday night, so I could feel the vibrant street life, and visit some bars. Leeds is a city with a large variety of pubs, bars and night clubs.As most British cities, many people are out on the streets, drunk and well dressed, at night. Bad Apples was a nice rock bar I visited.
Many buildings are illuminated after dark, like the Town Hall and the Bridgewater Place skyscraper (with neon stripes) for example. Especially churches and highrises that are illuminated can be found. Trinity Leeds shopping complex is open late, even if the stores close at 8.
