The summer holidays are here! With six whole weeks ahead, you may be looking for adventures and activities for all ages. Luckily, Leeds has a summer of fun sorted.

Outdoor explorers are spoilt for choice with play areas and parks. What better way to explore than to follow a trail? There’s the largest city Dinosuar trail running throughout the holidays. Animal lovers can make friends with creatures large and small. Time travellers can journey through the centuries while creators can get hands on.

Find out more on our Family Fun page, including events and activities that are in store for the summer holidays. And read on for a bumper edition of ‘dates for your diary’

SAVE ON A CITY BREAK

With so much happening in Leeds, and being ideally placed to explore Yorkshire further, it’s the perfect time to plan your city break. We’ve teamed up with local hotels to create an unmissable offer, ideal for the summer holidays. We invite you to Be Our Guest and enjoy three nights for the price of two this summer. Plus, the first 100 people to book will be welcomed by a hamper full of treats from local independents worth £100!

You’ll want to tuck into the incredible food and drink scene here too. With #EatLeeds you can do just that for less! Leeds restaurants have come together to offer 2 or 3 courses for £10, £15 or £20, or free children’s meals.

 

Breeze Leeds

BREEZE LEEDS

Breeze Leeds is back this summer with its brand new Breeze Pass, providing young people with access to all the best events and offers across the city. As part of the exciting glow up, young people can now access a digital Breeze Pass on the new Breeze app. A Breeze Pass costs just £5 a year and gives access to a whole host of offers including discounted entry to many of Leeds attractions. So it’s worth having even if you’re coming for a day trip or a short stay!
