Apartment, Property & Houses in Morley
Morley has long been regarded as a handy location for anyone working in Leeds city centre. Just five miles away from the city, it's a pleasantly short trip by road or rail. With regular trains to and from Leeds, and an excellent bus service, it is often considered an affordable and pleasant town for anyone who likes Leeds but perhaps prefers a quieter location. Of course, Morley is a town in its own right, and there's plenty going on. With a population approaching 50,000 for Morley and the surrounding areas, it's no surprise that there's plenty to see and do.
This delightful market town can be dated as far back as the doomsday book, although architecturally speaking; you are more likely to come across Victorian and Georgian properties. Of particular note is the Morley Town Hall, listed Grade 1 in order to preserve this fine example of architecture from its time. Thanks to the many historical buildings in the town, it's often possible to find attractive conversions, apartments, and even freehold homes with fine proportions, older style elegance and period features to buy and rent. We have a range of properties to rent in Morley available on our site.
Present day Morley is a vibrant place to be. With a fine range high street multiples and a delightful collection of independent stores, Morley has enough to offer for anyone who doesn't feel the pull of nearby Leeds. With three large supermarkets there is always somewhere to pick up the groceries without heading into Leeds.Morley used to be home to Orbit, one of the most famous nightclubs in the country, but since it shut its doors ten years ago, late night revellers have tended to head to Leeds City centre. This makes Morley a lively, if relatively calm place to live. There are plenty of great pubs and bistros with a great atmosphere, but if you want it late and loud, Leeds is never far away!
It's right to recognise Morley as a location in its own right, but of course, having Leeds on your doorstep is a major boon for the area. Leeds is one of the most vibrant and exciting cities in the UK, and of course, job opportunities are plentiful. Morley is such a short commute to Leeds that it has always been popular with city workers.
Whether you're looking for a vibrant town in its own right, or you are hoping to find somewhere on the periphery of Leeds which allows you to access the city centre easily, Morley could be just the place for you!
