Leeds, is this the number one 'party' city in the UK? Some would say so. The two main universities are both central and their 70,000 students tend to mix quite well (for the most part). There are also a number of student dominated areas which create friendly, energetic enviroments to live in. Shopping is well catered for and focused around the city centre - according to estimates there are around 1000 retail outlets here. As with most big cities, this is not the safest, but being sensible is the name of the game. Now, back to nightlife, this is undoubtedly up there as one of the best destinations for nightlife, but, transport brings it down. Unlike a number of significant rivals, Leeds relies on taxis to ferry students from one location to another; it st just a little too spread out to take the number one title?
