Leeds City Breaks

Leeds leads the way in great short breaks.

For a city that really has it all, then take your Best Western weekend city break in Leeds. Being one of the most vibrant, popular cities in England, Leeds will be a hit with all age groups, as there’s so much to see and do.

A Leeds short break staying at a Best Western hotel is highly recommended because of the:

  • Royal Armouries
  • Various Theatres
  • City Art Gallery
  • Cosmopolitan Shopping

Leeds is an old city with an incredibly young outlook. In the City Centre itself, modern offices sit alongside majestic old buildings like the Town Hall and the Corn Exchange, and impressive new shopping precincts complement the traditional Victorian arcades.

Over the past decade, Leeds has blossomed into one with a café culture and a buzzing nightlife. And being a green city, Leeds is immensely proud of its many parks and open spaces.

So what’s there to do in and around Leeds?

Step back through time at The Royal Armouries, with its exciting insight into the history of arms and armoury where adults and children alike can interact with the exhibits.

During your stay in Leeds you'll find an abundance of activities and leisure facilities. There’s an extremely lively vibrant entertainment scene with film festivals, concerts and plays galore. The West Yorkshire Playhouse is home to one of the leading provincial theatre companies. And did we mention that Leeds has a thriving local music scene?

Leeds City Art Gallery is home to a wide variety of exhibitions and now also houses the new, internationally famous Henry Moore Centre.

Sports lovers certainly won’t feel left out, as Headingley (for Cricket and Rugby) and Elland Road are easily accessible.

Shop till you drop in Harvey Nichols (the first one to be opened outside of London), sample the sheer delight that is the stylish Victorian Quarter, or try the unique shopping experience at the Corn Exchange or The Light.

Fancy travelling a little further afield?

Harewood House and Bird Gardens are home to the magnificent 18th Century house and over 100 acres of breathtaking gardens created by Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown.

Tropical World provides a beautiful and gentle insight into the fascinating world of butterflies, Meerkats, tropical fish, bats, snakes and spiders – not for the faint hearted!

The National Media Museum (formerly the National Museum of Film, TV and Photography) in neighbouring Bradford offers you the chance to delve into an amazing world of media, and is home to the phenomenal five-storey IMAX screen.

A well earned break in one of Best Westerns friendly city hotels in Leeds will leave you refreshed and invigorated.
