Leeds – A City we Love to Serve
West Yorkshire is home to the city of Leeds. Second largest metropolis in the UK, the history of Leeds can be traced to the Kingdom of Elmet in the 5th century. Elmet was surrounded by a forest called Leodis and this is how Leeds was named. Leeds natives are called Loiners.
You will find our Sub Zero Climate Control vans around the city area and the outskirts, as this is one of the larger areas we cover when servicing air conditioning units. We would service, residential, retail and commercial air conditioners and always enjoy visiting Leeds as it’s such an interesting city and it gives us a chance to admire the beautiful Yorkshire Dales as we drive to the city. The countryside around these parts is nothing short of spectacular and for those that have yet to visit; Yorkshire is welcoming, scenic, and great value with lots of different aspects to enjoy. Moreover, of course we are located here!
Leeds has many different places to stay from simple Bed and Breakfasts to luxury hotels. We like the old famous hotels such as the traditional Victorian Quebec’s Hotel on Quebec Street, the Hilton Leeds City Hotel on Neville Street located close to the city’s shopping districts, and the Art Deco Queens Hotel, which is the most famous landmark in Leeds.
If we are working over in Leeds for a couple of days, we often take advantage of some of the fantastic food on offer. There is such a range from pizza and pasta, traditional British cuisine, Thai, good old fish and chips and our favourite curry! You can find some authentic Indian restaurants with some of the tastiest curries you will find this side of Bombay or Mumbai as they call it these days.
For nightlife, Leeds is buzzing and a great music venue. There is the O2 Academy close to Millennium Square while Mojo is a live acoustics venue with well-stocked cocktail bar if Margueritas are your thing. We like the Slug and Lettuce located on Park Row great for relaxing with friends. For livelier party people, excitement and fun awaits at the Oceana Leeds, which is the pick of bars and clubs in Leeds.
Leeds is a city where you can appreciate the buildings that were erected with the wealth of the industrial revolution and there are many that are still a source of civic pride. Museums and historical places abound and it is well worth visiting the Royal Armouries, Roundhay Park, City Art Gallery, Hardwood House, West Yorkshire Playhouse, and Leeds University. The ancient Temple Newsam House and Lotherton Hall are worth a visit. There are guided walks around the city, which are great for culture vultures. There are also many museums and nature parks in Leeds such as the Abbey House, Armley Mills Industrial and Horsforth Village Museums, and Canal Gardens, Golden Acre, Tropical World, and Chevin Forest Parks.
Travel to Leeds is easy and a number of local airports cater to overseas and European visitors: Leeds Bradford, East Midlands, and Manchester are options and there are great rail links.
