Leeds Named in Top Cities for Pub Gardens

We may have been enjoying a scorcher of a summer but, on average, it’s safe to say that us Brits aren’t the luckiest when it comes to the weather. So, when the sun is out, we are too, making the most of every second we can get. From relaxing walks in the warm evenings to picnics and BBQs in the afternoons, we love making the most of these sunny spells while they last! But where is the ultimate place to enjoy the sunshine? For us it’s definitely a great beer garden, soaking up the rays with an ice-cold drink in hand and, according to some new research, we’re in luck! Leeds has just been named one of the best cities for picturesque beer gardens! There’s no shortage of excellent bars and restaurants in this great northern city. Leeds is even home to one of Yorkshire’s six Michelin-starred restaurants. However, when the sun comes out, it seems Leeds is a great place for those wishing to partake in a little al fresco drinking session.

The findings, revealed by Liberty Games, analysed the hashtags #beergarden and #pubgarden on the popular photo-sharing platform Instagram to discover which UK cities popped up the most. According to the Insta-data, Leeds comes out in the top 10! With 1 in 50 of the images analysed taken in the Yorkshire capital. Pubs such as The Palace and Headrow House were mentioned in some of the hashtagged images, and with so many great pubs in the city, it’s no surprise that it’s one of the best places for summer drinking. The gaming company also conducted another pub study recently, which looked at the number of pubs per square mile in UK cities. Although Leeds doesn’t feature in the top 30, the raw data reveals that it has an average of 3 pubs per square mile, beaten by the best performing Yorkshire city Kingston upon Hull, which averages 7 pubs per square mile!
