The Leeds branch has been running since 1993 and is located at 169 Woodhouse Lane, in a separate building on the Leeds University campus (near the Parkinson Building). There are other branches based in London and Manchester.

The Instituto offers a wealth of cultural events including film screenings, lectures, talks, plays, poetry readings and concerts. Most events are free of charge and they take place either in the Instituto Cervantes or on Leeds University campus.
