There’s a real independent spirit to life on the South Bank, and Points Cross sits at the heart of it all.
The South Bank of Leeds has gone from strength to strength over the past few years. Must-visit restaurants, cultural hotspots and a rich heritage – it has it all, and then some. Add to this a scenic riverside locale, just minutes away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre, and you’ve got yourself one of the most enviable living destinations in Leeds – which is where you’ll find Points Cross.
Enjoy a stunning riverside location
The most striking thing about Points Cross is its location. You’ll find this breathtaking development of new homes close by the thriving South Bank waterfront, right across from Leeds Dock. There’s something special about living by the water – it really does improve your quality of life. Expect miles of scenic paths for cyclists, joggers and walkers to explore, lush green spaces and laid-back outdoor eateries. This is city centre life at its very finest.
Hop on the water taxi for the most scenic commute in Leeds
Everyone loves the water taxi. Board one of their little yellow boats and you can live out all of your seafaring dreams – if your dreams include tootling down the waterway to Granary Wharf for just £2 that is. It’s without a doubt one of the most cheap and cheerful ways to travel into the city, and on a sunny day you can get out on the deck and take in epic views of the Leeds skyline. The best bit? Move into Points Cross and you’ll find it just a stone’s throw from your front door.
Explore a wealth of culture
The South Bank is home to two of Leeds’ hottest cultural destinations – The Tetley and Royal Armouries. Head to the former for a whole host of hip happenings, including creative workshops and family-friendly events, alongside contemporary art exhibitions and an epic bar and kitchen. The latter is one of the most popular museums in Leeds, for good reason. Explore five floors of weapons and armour, as well as captivating live combat demonstrations.
Venture out to an array indie gems
If you love an indie venue – and who doesn’t? – you’ll be absolutely spoilt for choice. Start your day right with a cuppa and a pastry from North Star Coffee and Nova Bakehouse, then shuffle on over to Cha Lounge for a sustainable lunch. While away a sunny afternoon with beers at Piglove by the River, catch a gig at Sheaf Street, then dive into indulgent Indian fare at Mumtaz. Oh, and you’ll find two of the city’s best Sunday roasts at Fearns and The Tetley respectively.
Find your zen at Yoga Hero

Cosy up with a book on a boat at Hold Fast
Leeds Dock is home to one of the most wholesome venues in the city. The good ship Hold Fast is an ex-coal barge-turned book and plant shop, packed with literature, botanicals and all sorts of arty gifts. Step inside and you’ll find books galore – old and new, spanning every genre.
