Walking is a fantastic way to get – and stay – healthy.

One of the reasons health experts give walking rave reviews is because it’s a ‘lifestyle exercise’. That means you can usually make time for it without too much of a change to your daily routine. Walking to work, to the shops, or to school may take a little more time, but it’s certainly not the big project that signing up for a gym (and the time or cost to get there) can be.

Victoria Gardens is ideally located within walking distance of a wide range of local destinations, such as local schools, local shops, Headingley town centre, The University of Leeds, and even Leeds City Centre, which is around 30 minutes away on foot.
