Here are 5 reasons why Leeds should be your next city-break:

  1. You can arrive in the heart of Leeds from London King’s Cross from 2 hrs 13 mins* with LNER.
    Get food and drink delivered to your seat and enjoy free WI-FI onboard. Travelling by train never felt so good!
  2. Leeds is the cultural city of the North, with a compact and walkable city-centre where vibrant street art sits alongside stunning Victorian architecture. There’s a jampacked programme of events throughout Autumn and Winter including Leeds International Festival of Ideas, Leeds International Film Festival, and A Magical Leeds Christmas announcing the return of Leeds Christmas Markets. And with theatres, museums, galleries, the First Direct arena, and a wealth of independent music venues you’ll find a variety of live entertainment every night of the week.
  3. Looking to try something new? Leeds has plenty of experiences you could enjoy…including food tours, beer tours, brewery tours, walking tours and cocktail masterclasses.  With so much happening you won’t know what to choose first.
  4. And for those who want a city-break that has it all, on a trip to Leeds you can combine the dazzling big city experience with the breath-taking scenery of Yorkshire. Our city centre provides easy access to two national parks – Yorkshire Dales and North Yorkshire Moors – plus a further two areas of outstanding beauty right on the door-step, making us the perfect base to explore some of the UK’s most beautiful and dramatic natural landscapes
  5. Leeds is undoubtedly the foodie capital of the North with a thriving independent scene which celebrates our city’s heritage and our amazing local produce. There’s so many independent coffee shops, restaurants, bars and dessert places from Michelin starred dining to street food.
