    Sometimes the sentence force you to use specific one , for instance,
    غادر القاعة
    you can't say
    انصرف القاعة but rather to say
    انصرف من القاعة
    I think the second one is more informal but still you need to use specific one according to your sentence.


    There no difference in the meaning , but there is a grammatical difference that انصرف needs a preposition after it like من or إلى but غادر doesn't need any prepositions.
