InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Leeds

Hello to all Americans in Leeds! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Leeds? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Leeds which will be showing your favorite baseball or American football team’s upcoming match or where to go in town for st■ turkey?

There’s no doubt about it: Leeds is an incredibly diverse city with a lot to offer. The modern and cosmopolitan city in West Yorkshire is a large northern city known for its various universities, music festivals, lively nightlife, shopping opportunities, restaurants, and much more! With the network of buses and train services as well as good road links, navigating your way around the city from one place to the next is simple. This also means that if you don’t want to live among the hustle and bustle of the center, you can enjoy a quieter life in more rural areas such as Horsforth or Alwoodley, for example, which are approximately a 30-minute train journey away from Leeds’s center.

Although Leeds has lots to offer, you might be wondering where and how you can meet other Americans in the city. Luckily, InterNations is here to make this easier for you! You’re warmly invited to join the InterNations community. Within our international network in Leeds, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.
