Without doubt Headingley is all about the interaction of students, professionals, academics and families within an area of the city steeped in history. Rarely does an area of any city hold so much attraction to so many occupier profiles. Certain streets within Headingley may be slightly over-populated with students, but on the whole everyone gets along, evidenced by the mingle of personalities in the cafes on Arndale centre on a Saturday or Sunday, or in the many pubs and bars, where locals rub shoulders happily with students – especially on a Saturday when many are found in excellent fancy-dress. This ‘parade’ has become something of a tradition with many stag and hen parties from across the country coming to Headingley to undertake the famous ‘Otley Run’.
