Hi I moved up to Leeds area 3 years ago from London and have no regrets. Great countryside, Leeds is a compact city so you can walk to anywhere in the centre (no tube journies), good music, shops, food.
Lots of jobs, especially legal, banking, supermarket HQs, NHS and digital.
I moved to Ilkley near Leeds 20 years ago. Love it, love Yorkshire. Beautiful countryside, cheap housing, lots of employment, friendly people. Also lots of choice of different areas to live. Very stylish city with lots of culture and good transport links to other cities. London in 2.5 hrs. Weather definitely not so good as London but everything else compensates for it.
