Headingley – St Michael’s Corner

St Michael’s Corner is ideal for students wanting the best of both Hyde Park and Headingley. Located on the border between the two, Hyde Park is just down the road and Headingley a 2-minute walk away. Take a trip into Headingley centre if you are in need of a Sainsbury’s shop, a charity shop run or a cheeky Nandos. Alternatively, pop down the road for a cinema trip to Hyde Park Picture house or a summer BBQ in the park. If you fancy a drink you are surrounded by good pubs. We recommend the Original Oak and Hyde Park Pub, both of which have cheap drinks and nice outdoor areas.
