Social distancing has led to a slight content block on Instagram for many. Armed only with our throwback photos, or a couple of quarantine selfies; many of us are dreaming of the day that the restaurants open again, and the bustle of the city returns.
Leeds is the second instalment of our Post-Lockdown Instagram Bucket List series, with the first being Insta highlights of Manchester, where we will be posting Almero’s recommendations for boosting your Instagram content in various cities in the UK once lockdown ends. For anyone seeking private student accommodation in Leeds for 2020/21, we highly recommend you explore Almero’s selection right here.
Here are five instagrammable places in Leeds to capture and post once social distancing measures are lifted.
ROUNDHAY PARK | Mansion Ln, Roundhay, Leeds | LS8 2HH
Snap a picture of the graceful swans on the glassy lake, the blooming daffodils, or take a post-run selfie. This is a 15-minute drive out of the city centre, so we recommend you make a trip out of this with your friends over a weekend. Roundhay Park currently remains open to the public.
BRUDENELL SOCIAL CLUB | 33 Queen's Rd, Burley, Leeds | LS6 1NY
Post a picture of your foamy beer in the flashing stage lights, your friends playing a game of snooker, or – if you are lucky – pose backstage with the band. Events are hosted most nights of the week, with an eclectic mix of music genres. See their upcoming gigs and social events here.
This is only a 4 to 6-minute walk from our 48 Royal Park Road, 82 Hyde Park Road and Thornville Court properties, which comprise of a selection of stylish private student accommodation options.
