Counter Terrorism

Counter Terrorism Policing is working with the Rugby League World Cup 2021 to encourage the public to be vigilant for anything that doesn’t seem right, and to report it to security or a police officer. Security is a team effort. When you are in our stadium, be aware of your surroundings. Report anything that doesn’t seem right to a steward. Trust your instincts and ACT. In an emergency call 999.


Right across our city, and beyond, you’ll find attractions, experiences, destinations and hidden gems, shining new spotlights on our community, history, pride and passion. Leeds lives up to its reputation as Foodie Capital of the North so if you’re hungry for food from all over the world just take a walk round our city. Everything is walkable and accessible, check out Kirkgate Market and the Corn Exchange or find breathtaking artworks and intriguing exhibits at Leeds Art Gallery, or our City Museum. 

We’ve long loved the stage, and our theatres are something to behold. From the Victorian charm of the City Varieties, to the iconic Leeds Playhouse, bearing a new name for a new chapter in its storied history. Or there’s the Leeds Grand, home to our nationally renowned resident ballet and opera companies. 

It’s not all indoors, either. Taking to the streets might see you touring the blue plaques that hint at our city’s long lost stories, or staring up at striking street murals painted by the best new urban artists. So make your list, and see how many you can tick off.



Accessible parking is available on a first come first serve basis and can be pre-booked directly with the venue by email at sloquestions@leedsunited.com
