The new public square at Tower Works connects a beautiful stretch of the Leeds and Liverpool canal to the great public spaces at Granary Wharf. It is just an eight minute walk away from Leeds railway station and is well connected to the motorway network. Bordering the Round Foundry and Granary Wharf developments, it has some of the city’s best pubs, cafes and restaurants on its doorstep.



Tower Works is only an 8 minute walk to the Leeds railway station, making it an ideal location for commuting. Just walk along the Leeds Liverpool Canal and through Granary Wharf to Neville Street and you’re there. In 2014, the new iconic South Entrance to the train station is due to open – you’ll then be three minutes away from national rail connections.

Nearby local food and drink

Across the road

It really doesn’t get much better in Leeds. Tower Works has lots of great options right on the doorstep.

  • Out of the Woods − smoothies, juices, sandwiches, soups, salads and, vitally, great coffee.
  • The Cross Keys − a great independent pub with a great range of drinks, an excellent menu, a courtyard and a roaring fire. Part of the multi-award-winning locally run North Bar family.
  • The Midnight Bell − yes, yet another fabulous pub with a very good food menu and a lovely courtyard just over the road from Tower Works. A very popular option, this is run by the rather brilliant independent Leeds Brewery.
  • The Foundry − a superb wine bar and restaurant just a two minute walk away in the rather lovely Round Foundry estate.
  • Engine House − another excellent cafe restaurant just over the road in Foundry Square offering breakfasts and reat lunch and evening menus as well as private dining.
  • Pickled Pepper − another treasured local favourite, this bistro-style cafe does a great lunchtime trade. It’s in Saw Mill Yard, just next to The Foundry.
  • David Street Cafe − a proper local cafe for breakfasts and hot and cold lunches at good prices just opposite Tower Works. So trad they don’t bother with having a website.

A short walk along Water Lane towards Leeds

It’s a four minute walk to lots of other options including The Grove, probably one of the finest old school pubs left in Leeds. There are a range of other food and coffee options such as Philpotts and StarBucks at Bridgewater Place as well as a Tesco Express. And the main city centre retail area is just a short walk away up Neville Street.
