From its origins as a mill town during the industrial revolution, Burley has evolved into a modern, but still modest, community that plays host to a large population of students from the nearby University of Leeds and Leeds Metropolitan University.
The town is characterised by brick houses, rolling hills, and narrow streets that, in some places, still sport the original cobblestone paving.
There are numerous well-maintained green spaces, and a lively dining and entertainment area along the River Aire.
Given all it has to offer, finding student accommodation in Burley can be difficult. Unless you contact HOP.
