Leeds is a vibrant and buzzing city in the north of England, with easy access to the stunning countryside and coast of Yorkshire. If you’re staying in the city for a few days, check out these tips on things to see and do there.

Get Arty

Leeds has several significant art galleries, including the Leeds Art gallery, where you can see classical and more modern works on display, and the Tetley, which hosts more contemporary, experimental works. There is also a street art trail to follow if you’d like to see the city whilst experiencing some art at the same time.

Taste The City

Leeds has been named ‘Foodie Capital Of The North’, in recognition of the range of small eateries, street food options, classic pubs and Michelin starred restaurants it has. Everywhere you go in the city, you can expect to find excellent food made with love and care. Visit Kirkgate Market (the UK’s biggest indoor market) for some fantastic street food options, where you can eat almost every cuisine in the world!

Explore The Countryside

Within easy access from Leeds are the Yorkshire dales and the stunning coastline. Take a bus, train or drive to places such as Staithes (a small fishing village on the coast), the Howardian hills, or any of the small market towns which dot the Yorkshire countryside.
