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.


Russel Scott is a good hostel, clean and comfortable, just a short walk from Leeds Central Station or Victoria Square, yet on a very quite area at Lisbon Square, one block from Wellington St. You can get a private room (with shared bathroom) for almost the cost of a shared bed. Unfortunately one woman in the staff spoke very little English, but they were hospitable. A rich breakfast was included, guest were allowed to use what they wanted in the modern kitchen. With codes for the door I must say security is high. This hostel has no elevator, but that's ok since this redbrick building has only a few floors. There also seems to be parking lots for the ones arriving by car. The shower system was a bit surprising for non-UK residents, working the opposite way as usual.
