The safest Leeds suburbs to move to

| August 1, 2022

As a Leeds removal company with over 100 years of removals experience, we’ve moved people all over. Not just in and around Leeds, but across Yorkshire, the UK and even the world.

The perfect house – and the perfect location – is something different to everyone. Some people crave the calm peacefulness of a detached property in a rural location. Others want the hustle and bustle of a city centre and the minimalist simplicity of an apartment. For some people the perfect home might be a compact cottage in a thriving market town, or a terrace in a community-centred suburb.

But what all house hunters have in common, in our experience in Leeds removals and beyond, is wanting their new property to be somewhere they feel safe and secure.

Which is why this article caught our eye, as it’s all about the safest places to live in and around Leeds.

It seems the safest place to live in the area, according to police figures, is market town Wetherby, situated 12 miles from Leeds centre and towards West Yorkshire’s boundary with North Yorkshire. Second on the list is Garforth in East Leeds. The remaining areas all concentrated on the North of the city – Guiseley; Collington, Rigton and Harewood; and Primley Park and Wigton Moor took third, fourth and fifth spots.

Scarcroft, Shadwell and Scholes was sixth on the list. Aberford, Barwick and Thorner was seventh. Bramhope and Pool in Wharfedale took the eighth spot. Ninth went to Alwoodley and tenth to Roundhay.

If you’re looking beyond Leeds (but still in God’s Own County), the safest places to live in Yorkshire are apparently Leeming, Pickhill and Thornton in Hambleton, North Yorkshire.

Of course, there are plenty of places beyond those listed which offer safe, attractive and interesting places to live. We’re lucky we get to see such a lot of locations in our work in Leeds removals. There are so many welcoming and warm communities within the city and beyond it – and lots of lovely places to set down roots.

If you’re thinking of moving home we can help with all your house removal needs. There are no ‘daft questions’ and we’re always happy to help answer any queries you may have. We understand that for most people moving isn’t something they do every day, and we’re on hand to help you through the process.

With the property market continuing to be buoyant, it’s always worth trying to secure your removal firm with plenty of notice. So as soon as your property sells, or your offer is accepted, it’s never too early to get in touch and get an estimate for your removal. That way, once you have a moving date agreed, it can be booked in straight away, giving you the best possible chance of securing the day you want.
