Things to do
Living in Whinmoor
A short bus ride away are a multitude of things to enjoy in Leeds city centre. Michelin star restaurants, international galleries, possibly the best shopping in the north of England and three theatres.
In the opposite direction, there is the magnificent city of York, just 17 miles away, or further afield you can explore the Yorkshire dales and Moors.
Closer to home, and a short drive/long walk is Roundhay Park, with woods, walks and lakes to visit, along with Tropical World for the young at heart.
Finesse is also close by to a number of interesting villages (Thorner, Bramham, and more) and a walk in nearby Bramham Park will convince you that home is in the countryside, not the outskirts of Leeds.
Nearby Leeds centre offers two world-class theatre experiences, along with a number of cinemas. When dining out in Leeds you will be spoilt for choice. Try Michelin-rated Man Behind The Curtain, or a refined meal at 44 The Calls. If you want something more modern, exotic or foreign, there’s plenty to suit every taste in Leeds centre.
Further afield, and you can explore the nearby Yorkshire Dales, historic York, or genteel Harrogate. There is a lot of open countryside on your doorstep, with woods and streams and parkland all just a short walk away.

Finesse is only half a mile from the A64, giving quick access to the A1M (just four miles away) and therefore routes to York, north to Harrogate and Teesside, or south to Doncaster. The M1 link is also only five miles away, with fast access around the north-east side of Leeds and down to the M62.
You can drive into the centre of Leeds easily, or catch buses that pass directly outside the Finesse development. The regular buses give access to nearby villages, and beyond to Wetherby and Harrogate.
The Seacroft shopping centre is under a mile away, with a large Tesco amongst a range of useful shops. More independent shopping can be had in Wetherby, just five miles from home, and a considerable range of shops can be found in the centre of Leeds.
Leeds is host to the recently opened Trinity and Victoria centres, in addition to John Lewis and Harvey Nichols department stores among other high street brands and independent retailers.
