Things to do in Leeds
If you need some extra ideas for your trip to Leeds, here’s a handful of our favourite things to do and places to see throughout the city.
Leeds Town Hall
As one of the most iconic buildings in the city, Leeds Town Hall is a must-visit. Built in the 19th century as the result of a design competition, today it’s used as an events space as well as a landmark in its own right. To get to Leeds Town Hall, the walk from Jurys Inn takes around 20 minutes.
We recommend: going next door to Leeds Central Library after your visit to the Town Hall
Marks in Time
Marks in Time is the birthplace of the iconic retailer Marks and Spencer, and today it’s home to an impressive collection of historic garments and company artefacts from more than 130 years of business. If you want to see the evolution of this popular British brand throughout the decades, Marks in Time is well worth a visit.
We recommend: taking the kids to play dress-up in the Children’s Zone.
Victorian Tiled Hall Café
Located in the same building as Leeds Central Library and Leeds Art Gallery , the Victorian Tiled Hall café is a great little spot to enjoy a coffee, a light bite or even a beer. Originally used as a reading room, the arched hall was restored in 2007, including its impressive mosaic ceiling and ornate tiles.
We recommend: opting for a classic Yorkshire tea and a slice of homemade cake.
Royal Armouries Museum
Located in Leeds Dock, the Royal Armouries Museum is home to an impressive collection of around 8,500 objects of mainly arms and armour from different countries across the world. Split across six themed exhibitions, including the tournament gallery, the oriental gallery and the self-defence gallery.
We recommend: watching a live jousting show at the Tiltyard outside.
Roundhay Park and Tropical World
When you want to escape the hustle and bustle of the city, a visit to the beautiful Roundhay Park is a must. Go on a cycle ride, visit the monthly Oakwood Farmer’s Market, or see the impressive collection of plants at Tropical World.
