What we love about Headingley & Meanwood
Cottage Road Cinema
The Cottage Road Cinema has been a much loved feature of the Headingley entertainment scene since 1912, making it the oldest cinema in Leeds and one of the oldest in the country. The cinema's programme comprises both classic films and contemporary releases. As one of the few independent cinemas in the country, it offers competitive prices and a unique viewing experience.
Beckett Park is a much loved, green oasis on the edge of Headingley, West Park and Kirkstall. Whilst bordering a busy residential area and university buildings, it is something of a hidden gem, enjoyed by local people. It is rarely crowded and its paths through green wooded glades offer a sense of calm that is not often found in urban parks.
Meanwood Urban Village Farm
As its name suggests, this is a lovely, working city farm and registered charity set in 24 acres, which is a vibrant centre for community and environmental activities. Open every day it has a cafe and farm shop and is much loved by local children and grown-ups alike.
