Or perhaps it’s the thriving shops, cafes, pub (the Kings Arms is real ale heaven) and the beautiful stone-built Victorian and Edwardian houses that make this feel like a piece of Yorkshire you really want to be a part of. Either way, Heaton is a sought after area of the city – and one that’s definitely worth considering if you’re looking for a great family home in a vibrant, welcoming location.
