Situated between Horsforth to the east, Yeadon to the west, Apperley Bridge to the south and The Dales to the north, Rawdon is one of the greenest suburbs in the area yet is within a few minutes drive of many local shops and amenities.
The heart of Rawdon is Town Street, a narrow thoroughfare, that runs higher than but parallel with the A65 Rawdon Road. The centre retains many of the village’s quaint shops, including a bakers, post office, pub etc and catering for local residents are the primary school and church. Restaurants and cafés are to be found at Rawdon traffic lights, the crossroads for the Harrogate to Bradford roads that intersect with the Leeds to Ilkley road.
Rawdon has an excellent golf club just to the north of the very desirable residential area of the Rawdon Cragg Wood Conservation Area. Further to the north is the Leeds and Bradford International Airport, far enough away from most housing not to be a disturbance but convenient for those undertaking frequent air travel or working in the travel or aviation industries.
