24 Hours in Leeds

With just 24 hours in Leeds, visitors will want to make their most of their time in the city, so we've created an example itinerary which shows off all Leeds has to offer.

One day

Victoria Quarter - Hannah Webster


Morning: Visitors can soak up the incredible diverse shopping in Leeds, exploring Trinity Leeds, the city’s largest retail destination and home to over 120 high street favourites. Victoria Leeds , housed in beautiful arcades, is the perfect next stop for high-end designers, including Mulberry and Louis Vuitton and John Lewis, where lunch can also be grabbed in the stylish Harvey Nichols Café, Issho or The Ivy

Afternoon: Head over to Kirkstall Abbey  and enjoy the Monks, Mead and Medieval Leeds tour with resident monk Bernard, or alternatively join the guided tour at Abbey House Museum where the guided tour Life in Victorian Leeds takes you through the museum’s authentically re-created Victorian streets for a glimpse at what life was like in 19th century Leeds. If you still have the energy grab some culture, heading to the Cultural Quarter and be sure to visit the Henry Moore Institute, part of the Yorkshire Sculpture Triangle and home to the largest collection of sculpture in Europe.

Taking destination dining in Leeds to new heights, Crafthouse is the perfect choice for a special restaurant experience overlooking the skyline of the city. With an incredible menu and its own rooftop garden it’s tough to beat – for post-dinner drinks, simply head upstairs to the glamourous bar, Angelica for a sophisticated evening of cocktails and conversation.

Treat yourself to boutique luxury at 42 The Calls, for a stay that’s filled with the
comforts of home and more, including breakfast fit for a king in the morning.
