Hotels in Leeds
Leeds might be an exciting urban hotspot but it’s also a great place to get away from it all - especially if you’re spending a weekend here. Lose yourself in the remains of a Cistercian monastery at Kirkstall Abbey, visit Harewood House and its stunning grounds or get tropical at Roundhay Park. For some serious country air, venture to the Yorkshire Dales. It’s only a 30-minute drive to the southern fringes of this national park.
Friendly, multicultural, brimming with the sort of energy you only find in university towns, and a darn good place to revamp your wardrobe. Leeds might not have the scale of London but boy, does it deserve its reputation as the ‘Knightsbridge of the North’. Think high culture combined with hedonism, flavours of South Asia alongside Yorkshire’s finest fish and chips, a buzzing city centre just a short drive from the serenity of the Yorkshire Dales. Grim up North? Stay at one of our Leeds hotels and you’ll discover it’s anything but. We’ve created a handy Leeds local guide to help you make the most of your stay.
