There is so much going on in Horsforth. Not necessarily nightlife - but it’s not too far from Leeds so it’s easy to have a good night out too

Transport was available but the providers seemed under no obligation to stick to a time table and congestion at rush hour made travel at those times impossible. A few ok takeaways and a local ish supermarket were nice but in most cases you were better off going further afield.

Nothing to do here really. University provides a free shuttle bus to the Horsforth train station. Couple of pubs and a Tesco express but if you want student vibes you need to go into Leeds.

buses to Leeds city centre, shops near by and a morrisons just up the road. Great for people who don't want a university right in the city. Excellent train services 20 min walk from university, There is also a tesco, barbers and a pub. buses and transport into Hyde park which has great pubs, clubs and shops too.

Small town outside of Leeds city centre. Tesco express by train station and Morrison’s in the town centre. LTU bus goes all around Horsforth from uni and back weekdays 9:28-16:24. After that time, the free shuttle bus goes from the train station and the last one goes from the uni to the station at 18:47

Horsforth is a £2 train away from Leeds for a night out so it doesn’t have to be amazing but there’s some decent pubs

There are plenty of clubs and bars in Horsforth and most of them are quite cheap. Also, there is a free shuttle bus from the university to take you to the train station and Morrison’s. There is also a public bus and then the train that can take you to Leeds and back in around half an hour, sometimes less

There was nothing there. Had to walk over a mile to get to the nearest big shop and the universities shuttle bus didn’t run weekends.

The town of horsforth is small and expensive! Not much nightlife apart from the odd pub but let’s face it with Leeds a 5 minute train ride, it doesn’t matter what horsforth is like!!

Horsforth is 15 mins away from the city centre by train which has epic nights out. Horsforth has a McDonald’s, Pizza Hut, dominos, pizza express, Toby carvery, miller and carter and way more. But the best part is the bars - they’re a bit pricey f But there’s a cockatiel bar and all sorts. Rent is high tho

Although Horsforth is out from the city centre it is super easy to get to the centre. Plus it makes it nice being a little further away on those peaceful nights you need!

Horsforth is more of a middle class area which makes it more expensive for students. With Leeds centre being a bit further than other Leeds universities it can be more pricey for nights out, as there is no nightlife in horsforth.
