Leeds' legal and financial centre, the largest outside of London, mark it out as the most powerful economy in the Yorkshire region, but it is far from dependent on these sectors alone. The city's jobs are spread fairly equally between the likes of public administration, education, healthcare, finance and hospitality, making it a diversified economy in relation to other UK cities. It is a popular destination for the northern headquarters of major financial companies including Barclays, HSBC, Santander and RBS, whilst other notable businesses in the area include William Hill, Activision and ASDA Walmart.
Travel time from Leeds to London on the train is currently less than two hours with the planned HS2 high-speed railway development set to cut that journey time to around 1 hour 30 minutes, and less than an hour to Birmingham. Its location just off the M1 motorway makes it a simple destination to access by car whilst it is served by Leeds Bradford International Airport to the north-west of the city.
