North East Leeds is the north-eastern portion of the city of Leeds, roughly starting at the bottom of Scott Hall Road in Sheepscar, extending as far north as Alwoodley, Shadwell and Wetherby. It is separated from East Leeds by Easterly Road and from North West Leeds by Stainbeck and Scott Hall Roads. This part of Leeds is one of the wealthiest parts of the city with many leafy, affluent districts and suburbs, as well as trendy areas such as Chapel Allerton.

The district is characterized by wealthy housing and gentified areas. There is not many industrial distrcts besides the estates in Sheepscar just north of the city centre.
The district is covered by the postcodes LS7, LS8, LS17, LS22 and LS23.
