The city of Leeds is located in West Yorkshire and is considered by many to be the cultural, financial and commercial centre of West Yorkshire. Historically, Leeds was located in the West Riding of Yorkshire and has grown from a small market town in the valley of the River Aire to become a large urban centre by the middle of the 20th century. During the Industrial Revolution Leeds transformed itself into a major industrial centre which was dominated by the wool and flax industries along with iron foundries and printing.
Leeds has three universities and as a result has one of the largest student populations in the UK. It is also second largest legal centre in the United Kingdom, after London. Leeds has extensive shopping opportunities for visitors including the indoor shopping centres of the Merrion Centre, St. John's Centre, The Core, the Victoria Quarter, The Light, the Corn Exchange and Trinity Leeds.
Leeds is home to the Grand Theatre where Opera North is based. The theatre has 1,500 seats and has recently undergone a £31.5m refurbishment. The City Varieties Music Hall, which hosted performances by Charlie Chaplin and Harry Houdini and was also the venue of the BBC television programme The Good Old Days, and West Yorkshire Playhouse. Just south of Leeds Bridge once stood The Theatre which hosted Sarah Siddons and Ching Lau Lauro in 1786 and 1834 respectively.
Located in the East Riding of Yorkshire, the city of Kingston upon Hull (usually just called Hull) is to be the UK City of Culture in 2017. During that year, Hull will have undertaken a major redevelopment thanks to an £11 million funding from the government and will host many cultural events all over the city to boost tourism, jobs and the economy.
The city centre is fairly compact and mainly pedestrianised, which creates a relatively hassle-free walk around town. Bus services in Hull are operated by East Yorkshire Motor Services and Stagecoach and buses can be taken from the city's bus station, Hull Paragon Interchange. Local and national rail services can also be taken from the Interchange.
Developed from the old derelict Humber Dock in the early 1980's, Hull Marina provides space for 270 yachts and small sailing craft in its permanent and visiting berths. The area is an enjoyable stroll with some great cafes and old pubs, and hosts annual the Sea Fever Shanty Festival. Usually held on the first Saturday and Sunday in September the festival attracts major shanty singers from the United Kingdom and from around the world. The main stage is along the Prince's dock side and groups sing in the pubs near by.
