An hour south of the Yorkshire dales, Leeds offers all the attractions of a big city, with a healthy dose of northern charm. This former market town was one of the UK’s biggest players in the industrial revolution, a legacy that remains in the form of sprawling warehouses and mills, many of which have been repurposed to house independent galleries and restaurants. Home to no less than four universities, Leeds city centre boasts a vibrant late-night scene that includes everything from compact craft ale bars to quirky nightclubs. If you’re looking for a comfortable hotel in Leeds, Jurys Inn Leeds is just a few minutes’ walk from the main shopping and restaurant districts.
Get your bearings
The River Aire twists through the centre of Leeds, dividing the city’s attractions in the process. Most of the action happens on the northbank, so start your day exploring the interactive exhibitions that span Leeds’ recent history at Leeds City Museum in Millenium Square. Or walk past the city’s signature red-brick buildings to the Victorian Tiled Hall Cafe for a cup of freshly brewed Yorkshire tea beneath a stunning mosaic ceiling.
While there are plenty of shops in Leeds, there’s nothing quite like a visit to the Salts Mill, a vibrant restaurant, shopping and arts complex in the nearby World Heritage Site of Saltaire. The grand, historic space is remarkably modern inside, with visitors making their way over to see a wide range of exhibitions, from David Hockney to medieval music. For a sobering dose of history, head back towards the city to the Royal Armouries, where the UK’s national collection of arms and artillery is on display.
While you’re there
Anyone on a Leeds trip wanting to get back to nature will love Roundhay Park, a gorgeous stretch of parkland, woodlands and lakes. And children will love Tropical World, home to rare animals and marine life.
