Search for car hire in Leeds

In recent years, Leeds has earned a reputation for being the life and soul of the north. Sitting equidistant from The Peaks and The Dales, there is culture and history bursting at this once Victorian mill town's seams.

In terms of architecture, modern design is helping to reinvent the city's demeanour. Evocative buildings, such as the diamond-shaped polished concrete of John Lewis, remind shoppers of the important textile heritage from which the city was born. The space-age Trinity complex is another example of clever, offbeat design mixed with a highly-desirable shopping experience.

These contemporary buildings are neatly woven into the historical streets and provide stark contrast to the older structures which grew up nearby. Plenty of restored Victorian arcades are fitting homes to independent shops and small boutiques, as is the elaborate oval Corn Exchange. The 18th century Kirkgate Market is full of small town vibes, yet is actually one of the largest markets in Europe.

Leeds has outgrown its ties with the Industrial Revolution, yet the city's past is best experienced at the Armley Mills, where huge textile machinery lies dormant in cavernous old factories.

The city is a really good host for festivals and the city centre works hard to put on events throughout the year. From an artificial beach in summer to autumnal beer festivals, there is plenty going on. Colourful creations are paraded along the streets during the West Indian Carnival. Jerk chicken is consumed, steel pans are played and the rhythm of infectious Soca beats fill the city.

Leeds is also close to some of England's most beautiful natural landscapes. From abseiling into caves and mountain biking in the Peak District to throwing pots and visiting art studios in the Yorkshire Dales, it's easy to find yourself in the quiet of the countryside.


Tips for hiring a car in Leeds

Tip 1
When you pick up your rental car in Leeds, check the tyre pressure before setting off to ensure that they are up to the required standards.
Tip 2
In Leeds, the central area works as a loop. Don't miss your turning - if you do, you could be stuck on the loop for over half an hour.
Tip 3
Leeds has many cool bars, chic restaurants and hip breweries. Agree designated drivers in advance to avoid temptation to drink and drive.
Tip 4
You'll find a lot of roundabouts in the Leeds area. Remember to always give the priority  to the cars coming from  your right and to turn left once you enter the roundabout.
