Leeds town guide
Leeds is the fastest growing city in the U.K. It has a compact city centre, great for shopping, nightlife, eating out, sport and clubbing.
A new heart for the city is the recently transformed Millennium Square with areas for street entertainment, civic ceremonies, concerts and other staged performances. Here you will find the City Library and Art Gallery and the Henry Moore Institute.
Leeds offers a great choice of eating out - from fish and chips, Yorkshire pudding to Asian and Oriental fare.
3,000 years of history are brought to life at the recently opened Royal Armories, telling the story of arms and armour through the ages.
Entertainment is on offer with the National Opera Company, the West Yorkshire Playhouse, the Grand Theatre and the Opera House, Jongleurs and the Comedy Store. At the City Varieties , the "Good Old Days" is still performed in April and October.
If you have a rental car explore 130 miles of the spectacular Yorkshire coastline. The North Yorkshire Moors and the Yorkshire Dales National Park are only a short drive out of Leeds.
For railway enthusiasts, a day at the National Railway Museum at nearby York is a must. The National Museum of Photography, Film and Television in nearby Bradford is also a great day out.
