Situated in central northern England, the region of Yorkshire centres around the historic town of York. The region became additionally famous for the momentous War of the Roses between the House of York and the House of Lancaster, where the famous colours of Yorkshire were adopted throughout the forthcoming centuries: Blue and White.
Leeds was industrialised to produce textiles, steal and coal, and gradually spread across the region. The city slowly became more influential and powerful, until subsequently it overtook York as the economic and industrial capital.
Offering fantastic opportunities for travel and fun, Yorkshire is one of the most visited regions of England internationally. It houses one of the Red Brick Universities - The University of Leeds, and it also includes a well renowned culture of Football, Cricket and Rugby. Leeds therefore has its proud history displayed throughout the nine superb Museums and Galleries across the city.
