Leeds vs Manchester vs Newcastle vs Edinburgh

by buckrodgers

Hi,

I am a guy from Singapore and moving to Berlin.

But I am having second thoughts because of the language barrier and wondering if I should consider Leeds, Newcastle, or Edinburgh (even Manchester!).

I heard there's quite a bit of drunken violence in Northern England at night, and was curious if I (as a visible foreigner) can expect any trouble?

Any thoughts on the quality of life in these cities would also be appreciated.

by aaaarrgh

Don't worry, you can find drunken violence in ALL Britain's cities on a Friday and Saturday night, of you look for it. Unfortunately the British like to drink large quantities of alcohol at the weekend for entertainment.

Leeds is one of Britain's largest cities, it has a large student population and also has a reputation as a great shopping centre and place for great nightlife.

I wouldn't worry too much about being from Singapore. Big cities usually have a variety of people living there and this part of Yorkshire is known for its large-ish Asian population.

You may sometimes have problems understanding the Yorkshire accent though :-)

Are there certain areas that I should avoid in Leeds? Just curious how Leeds would compare to say...Newcastle, Manchester, or Edinburgh.

Hi there,

I have lived in Leeds all my life. It is a great city with a msssive student population. You would be very suprised of the amount of foreign students studying in Leeds from all over the world.

I live beside a student area of Leeds and there is not alot of trouble at all!!!!

If you do deside to come to Leeds, let me know and I will be able to show you round.

I'm from Newcastle, so I'm perhaps a little bit biased here, but Newcastle is a great city. As someone has already said, you'll find drunkeness and alcohol-related violence anywhere in the UK. But if you know the areas to avoid, you'll be fine.

That's certainly the case in Newcastle. If you don't want to be caught up in drunken violence, just avoid the Bigg Market area of the City Centre, and perhaps the Quayside. You'll see people out getting drunk elsewhere in the City Centre, especially on Friday and Saturday nights and when Newcastle United are playing, but although it maybe noisy, you won't get any problems.

The North East of England has a reputation for being friendly, and I think that's largely true. Someone has already pointed out that the vast majority of British people are tolerant, and its absolutley true.

I don't think you need to worry about moving to any of those cities. They are all fairly multicultural places, and I'm sure you'd enjoy living in any one of them. It does get a bit cold though, but if you can put up with that, you'll like it.

Travel Tips for Leeds

43rd ANNUAL WEST INDIAN FESTIVAL

by alyf1961

The 43rd annual West Indian festival was once again a friendly colourful affair; The parade was amazing and the music foot tapping loud. I consider myself very lucky living in Leeds where there are parades and shows such as this, Leeds lights, light night and gay pride that are very happy community led occasions.
Once at Potternewton Park the problem was what to eat. Jamaican and Caribbean food smells wafted from the many stalls around the show ground. I decided to pass on the goat curry and I had my usual jerk chicken...delicious.
The colourful entrants of the parade all make their way back to the show ground where the winner is announced. I am glad I do not have to pick a winner as all the entrants were colourful and a lot of work must have gone into making the costumes.

Enjoy a beer in the sunshine

by traceyspacey about Aire Bar

Aire bar describes itself as a lounge bar. As you walk in you notice the exposed brick with comfy sofas and chairs. They have a pool table to keep you entertained. The highlight for us is the balcony terrace area looking over the river (or is the canal?). Great place to enjoy a cold beer on a sunny day. The staff are friendly. My boyfriend tried a bloody mary and said that it was good. pint of Starpromen £3 and bottles of wine start at £9.45.

The only thing that we noticed is that they seemed to be short staffed and had problems with the food orders. They weren't serving food yesterday due to a technical issue in the kitchen.

The beers are reasonably priced (cheaper than all the other bars in the area). Live sax every Thursday and Wednesdays are grill night.

Handy place for the Armouries and the riverside walk. no dress code

Great buffet

by BlueBeth about A Touch of Spice

I didn't even know this place existed until last week. It's situated upstairs in the Spice Quarter, which in turn is situated in the Electric Press complex, just off Millenium Square.
They don't just do Indian food though, although they do that very well indeed, they do pasta too. And they'll make your pasta sauce for you while you watch. Great salad and dessert selection too, usually lacking at a buffet style restaurant.

Enjoy the entertainment at the market

by traceyspacey

Now known as Artsmix formally Mosaic arts and craft market is held every 2nd and 4th Sunday of the month behind the corn exchange. This is our way into Leeds City Centre from where we live, so we often pass through here. The stalls sell original arts and crafts as well as food and drink. There are various performers there, so even if you don't intend to buy anything it is worth a visit. i believe that they also hold workshops for children here.

I have just seen a sign that the last outdoor market this year will be on the 14th September. It is moving indoors for Autumn/Winter to the Loft, checking for more details.

THE QUEENS HOTEL

by alyf1961

The Queens hotel is a landmark in Leeds. It is set in the heart of the city facing city square. Built in the 1930's in art deco style, it is impressively made from white Portland stone. At the beginning of the 20th century rooms in the hotel cost 4s [old money before decimalisation], breakfast was 3s and dinner was 5s.
