A thriving economy

With over 119,000 companies generating 5% of England's total economic output of £66.5 billion, Leeds City Region is the largest UK economy outside London and the south east. In fact our economy is bigger than nine European countries.

Plenty of top talent

Our city region has the largest, youngest and fastest growing workforce in the north. We’re one of the few regions experiencing a brain gain as a lot of our talent stays here after graduation or returns to enjoy an unrivalled quality of life.

Simple connectivity

When it comes to the essential ingredients for competitive advantage and growth, Leeds City Region is rich in digital, energy and transport connectivity. We’re investing in our infrastructure to increase capacity and maintain resilience over the next few years.

Quality of life

A cultural hotspot, breathtaking views and a creative outlook. The region is home to national collections and attractions like The Hepworth Wakefield, The Piece Hall, National Railway Museum, National Science and Media Museum, and the Royal Armouries.


“We are thrilled that Channel 4 is coming to Leeds City Region, a decision that will bring huge opportunities for them and us.”

Channel 4 chooses Leeds

The announcement follows two years of discussions with the broadcaster led by Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership with cross-party support from local authority partners, Screen Yorkshire, the creative and digital industries, the education sector and many others.
