Leeds is one of the largest cities in the UK, and the rose in Yorkshire’s crown with a population of ½ million, a thriving student community and excellent employment rates.
We look at the top five reasons you should consider serviced office space in Leeds.
1. Wide Range of Serviced Offices Available
Leeds plays host to several businesses across different industries with much of the available office space in the city centre. Over the past couple of years, the city has seen a sharp rise in the flexible office space market, with that set to double by 2023.
Landlords across the city are refurbishing facilities with desks, meeting rooms and data cabling, ensuring that they are ready for immediate use by clients. Businesses wanting to find serviced office space have a wide choice of modern, ready-to-go areas in Leeds Central or on the city’s outskirts.
2. Competitive Rental Rates
Rental rates for serviced office space in Leeds are significantly lower than in other major cities in the UK, with the guide price for serviced office space in Leeds city centre ranging from £175-£400 (excl. VAT) per person per month.
These competitive rents will vary slightly depending on the office space location, along with the level of amenities included in the tenancy.
3. Excellent Transport Links
Leeds’ location in the heart of Yorkshire makes it one of the largest transport hubs in the North.
The railway station is the third-busiest outside of London, with direct services to London, Scotland and regular connections with local towns and villages on the commuter belt.
The A1, A1(M) and M1 connect the city easily with London, the East Midlands, and the North-East of England, while the M62 links the city with Bradford, Manchester and Liverpool towards the West and the Port of Hull Eastward.
Meanwhile, Leeds Bradford Airport is only 8 miles away with regular bus services connecting it with the city centre.

4. Outstanding Business Amenities
The city offers a vast range of hotels to suit the budget and requirements of businesses of all sizes, ranging from high-quality international brands, such as Hilton, Marriott, and Park Plaza, all of which are in the city centre, to budget providers, such as Travelodge, Premier Inn and Holiday Inn Express, and some beautiful boutique offerings, such as Malmaison Leeds and the Dakota Hotel.
Meanwhile, for businesses that might need to host client meetings outside of their office space, the city provides several modern, rentable meeting rooms for highly reasonable rates.
5. Great Local Amenities
Some businesses, however, may choose to host business and client meetings in a more informal location, and Leeds offers an enormous selection of artisan cafes, craft bars, gastro pubs and restaurants that are perfect for hosting.
Meanwhile, the city centre offers those seeking retail therapy a little bit of everything. Trinity Leeds is a shopping centre that houses more than 100 shops, ranging from high fashion to independent boutiques and a thriving market scene.
Elsewhere, the city provides employees with the beautiful greenery of the 700-acre Roundhay Park to explore and relax in and plenty of gym options for those wanting to keep fit.
