When it comes to cover the most exciting things to enjoy in Leeds, the list goes on and on. Leeds has huge range of amazing things on offer for the people of all ages. But we have gathered some of the best to explore this city at its best.
Day Out with Kids
As there is so much to explore in Leeds, one can easily get confused where to take kids to entertain them. Well, kids will love enjoying the ride of mini trains at Kirkstall Abbey and Roundhay, along with spotting exotic birds, meerkats, crocodiles, and butterflies in the breathtaking exhibits. All of the museums in the city cater to the youngsters for the attention spans and needs, but the Royal Armouries, Leeds City Museum, and Thackray Medical Museum always strive hard to spark the imaginations of little ones with vivid explorations of the past and hands-on exhibits.
Enjoy the Nightlife
The city has stunning nightlife to explore. It is pretty amazing when enjoying dainty beverage under the twinkling lights. Most of the bars in Leeds are the best choice to provide panoramic views over the metropolitan skyline. Most of them even enjoy cracking cocktails, such as Angelica at the top of Trinity shopping centre for bespoke blends and classy mixes, or enjoy the lift ride to the top of SkyLounge at Hilton Doubletree for endless and well-presented concoctions. If you have got the adventurous itches, don’t forget to visit The Alchemist for the birds’ eye view of the Boar Lane and amazing menu of drinks with scientific flair.
Retail Therapy at the exotic Corn Exchange
The newly-revamped Corn Exchange is partly food hub and partly retail area, which hosts a community of striking boutiques and shops which beckon away from the stressing boulevards and chains outside. It closely resembles the cavernous and cross-hatched chamber of some of the amazing airship, breathtaking Grade-1 building, where you can visit quirky stores offering hand-crafted jewelry, sweets, unique outfits, gifts, and books, along with various salons, gourmet hot dogs, and a perfect escape to a tea break.
Located just 20 minutes by train, the picture-perfect Yorkshire Dales, along with the Tour de France built in 2014 which have gloriously kicked town hall, the city of Leeds is a very amazing destination for two-wheeled travelers. It has a lot of bike shops across the main retail area, and the CyclePoint just out of the train station. It’s a great place to have fun while shopping, buy parts and do a quick repair.
You can even hire a steed for a few quid for a day. With several traffic lights and congested roads, the city centre is not that perfect for a ride. So, it is better to visit the nearest countryside. Start a trip from Millennium Square after the Otley Road to visit the Otley and Ilkey, where you can find respite in several tearooms and pubs that you can find in upmarket towns. Real adventures are when you head to Grassington, Skipton, and Nidderdale, where you can enjoy the outings, if you are brave-hearted enough.
