A study into residents' views in the UK's eight largest cities finds that the Yorkshire city is judged "excellent" by 65 per cent of 15 to 35-year-olds. Alastair Da Costa, chairman of the Leeds Financial Services Initiative, said: "This proves that Leeds offers a great quality of life."
The poll measured residents' attitudes towards public transport, amenities, cleanliness and entertainment. Birmingham and Liverpool came second and third, with "excellent" verdicts from 64 per cent and 63 per cent respectively.
London, which ranked only sixth, received top marks for entertainment but poor scores on other issues.
