Leeds Life – Thrifty Student Spots


















Living in Leeds? Run out of money? Living off baked beans and pizza? Got nothing fun to do?

We’ve all been there at some point or another.


Luckily you’re in the right place!

Leeds is one of the best cities for students. Whether you’re looking for a night out with all your new mates or a fun day trip with your family visiting for the weekend, you will never be short of options. Even with a limited budget there are still so many places to explore and hidden gems to be found.

Here is our list of some great places you need to see and some great upcoming events on a budget that we’re really excited about…money-box


Temple Newsam in the Dark                  

Temple Newsam is located a short 15 minute bus ride from the city centre. Tucked away from the noise of the city, the estate holds events all year round in the grounds of the house. Temple Newsam is perfect for sunny days, whether you’re having a picnic or just chilling out in the sun. It also has a café, shop and a farm which you can look around for a small entry fee of £3.70!

Don’t fancy an expensive night out on Halloween? Temple Newsam are holding a ghost walk through the cellars for only £10. It is for adults only and “not for the faint hearted” so don’t take any of your mates who are easily frightened. Perfect alternative to hitting the clubs on Halloween!

Roundhay Park and Tropical World

Roundhay park is located a 20 minute bus ride from the city centre. The park is open every day and holds events regularly such as farmers markets, concerts and canoeing. It’s great to visit when the sun is out (not often in Leeds!), but if you fancy a bit of tropical weather on a rainy day then where better to go than Tropical World!

Tropical World is located next to the park and is filled with exotic plants and animals – from snakes to meerkats. The entry fee is just £5.00 and there’s a café and pub opposite for when you’ve finished!
