Fancy some great shopping and a fun night on the town? Then try a short break to the UK’s third largest city
Why go?Yorkshire’s unofficial capital is easy to enjoy, with a very walkable city centre and lots of exciting developments to see. A rich architectural heritage, including historic markets and shopping arcades, is matched by a contemporary energy being fuelled by fresh investment and some 250,000 students.
When:Anytime, but check what’s coming up as you might want to book tickets for bands, shows and festivals such as Live at Leeds (2-4 May, liveatleeds.com) and the Leeds Festival at Bramham Park (22-24 August, leedsfestival.com).
The night is for the young: Leeds Town Hall at dusk
Where to stay:Popular with hen parties, the three-star Bewleys Hotel (from £63, bewleyshotels.com) is ten minutes’ walk from the city centre with 334 bland but comfortable rooms and a hearty buffet breakfast (from £7.50). Other options include 42 The Calls (42thecallshotel.com), Malmaison Leeds (malmaison.com) and The New Ellington (thenewellington.com).
You really must:Check out what’s on at the 13,000-capacity First Direct Arena (0844 248 1585; firstdirectarena.com), which opened last September and can be reached on foot from the city centre – upcoming appearances include Robbie Williams, Pearl Jam and Lee Evans. Soccer fans can usually get tickets on the day for matches at Leeds United (from £25, leedsunited.com), now under new ownership.
