The Low Down

Our top picks to keep you busy from dawn till dark in Leeds’ South Bank


Morning, noon and night there’s a real independent spirit to life in South Bank Leeds. From heritage sites to award-winning bakeries, boat trips along the river to pottery classes in a boarded Victorian building, South Bank has it all.

Whether you’re a keen day-tripper or just looking for new things to do in the city with your family, there’s plenty to choose from. We’ve put together the ultimate Points Cross bucket list to get your started.

Grab your morning coffee and pastry at North Star Coffee and Nova Bakehouse
Setting the bar for speciality coffee, North Star Coffee Shop brings you the best brews in Leeds just a five minute walk from Points Cross, or 15 minutes from Leeds Station. Located on Leeds Dock, North Star and Nova Bakehouse work collaboratively providing the ultimate coffee and bakery combos.

Feel fit and fabulous at Yoga Hero
A convenient two doors down from Nova Bakehouse, Yoga Hero is an independent yoga studio set up by Holly Mcfee, who brought us Leeds’ first ever yoga festival. All of the classes at Yoga Hero are drop-in, so there’s no need to book, all your equipment will be provided too – perfect if you’re new to yoga and want to test the waters before splashing out on your own kit.

Get your hands dirty at Sunken Studio
Sunken Studio is a pottery school and coworking ceramics centre with a mission ‘to make making things a lot less lonely’. A team of six (including Martha the studio dog!) bringing creative thinkers together through studio memberships, courses and a variety of taster classes. Why not see if clay’s for you and give the handbuilding taster a try for just £40?

Grab a bite to eat at Sheaf St Cafe
A self-proclaimed hidden gem in the city of Leeds, Sheaf St. is home to a cafe, bar and multi-functional events space. Serving up a seasonal, local and largely egan menu – there’s something for the whole family.

Take some me-time at the Printworks
A stone’s throw from Points Cross, located in the heart of South Bank, Printworks Salon and Spa offer a range of professional hair and beauty services, all under the roof of a beautiful 19th century building. Find out what’s on offer here
