ATTRACTIONS visitleeds.co.uk

Harewood House

Harewood isn’t just a beautiful stately home…

…after taking a tour of the house, you can easily spend a whole day here. We always try to time it, so we can help feed the penguins! Then we head to the Terrace Tearooms for something delicious and enjoy views of the lovely ‘Capability’ Brown landscaped gardens, before catching a contemporary art exhibition in the adjoining Gallery. Inside Harewood House

Feeding the penguins at Harewood House

visitleeds.co.uk ATTRACTIONS

After a tour of the sumptuous treasures of Tudor-Jacobean Temple Newsam house… Temple Newsam

…pay a visit to the estate’s farm, where you can admire rare breed sheep, pigs and chickens before finding out just how tasty they are with a dish of sausages in the café. If you’d rather try the local vintage tipple, visit nearby Leventhorpe Vineyard to sample their award-winning wines.

Leventhorpe Vineyard

You might expect mills and mighty machinery to feature in the story of Leeds, as told in Leeds City Museum…

Pharaoh: King of Egypt. British Museum Touring Exhibition, Leeds City Museum

...and you’d be right, but there’s also everything from the British Museum’s Pharaoh: King of Egypt, to a trip down memory lane with the Silver 70s exhibition. Sitting outdoors at the café, you’re right in the heart of Leeds; it’s a brilliant location for watching events and also a starting point for city exploration with the Leeds Owl Trail.

19


ATTRACTIONS visitleeds.co.uk

Chevin Forest Park at Otley

Headingley Carnegie Stadium Leeds Rhinos

If you’re among those sports fans whose heart beats faster at the mere mention of ‘Headingley’… …then don’t miss the chance to experience a match with just fresh air between you and the action at Headingley Carnegie Stadium – the home of Leeds cricket and rugby. Then relive your favourite players’ most glorious moments at the Yorkshire Cricket Museum, before exploring Headingley, a hub for cafés and welcoming pubs.

20

It’s so peaceful, that it’s hard to believe Otley’s Chevin Forest Park… …is just a few miles from Leeds. If you’re feeling energetic, climb the wooded path up the Chevin to enjoy a fantastic view from the summit, or get pedalling along the 6.5km of cycle-friendly bridle paths. We’d recommend dropping in at the town centre Bondgate Bakery beforehand to stock up on some of the tastiest breads, cakes and other picnic goodies around.


visitleeds.co.uk ATTRACTIONS

Royal Armouries Museum

Just a short walk along the waterfront from the city centre, the Royal Armouries… …at Clarence Dock is home to thousands of unique, precious – and sometimes downright terrifying – objects, from the exquisitely deadly weapons in the Oriental Gallery, to Henry VIII’s tournament gear and the largest animal armour in the world. Don’t leave without seeing how you’d fare on the battlefield by testing your skills in the crossbow range.

ATTRACTIONS visitleeds.co.uk

Gatehouse Café

Kirkstall Abbey

Keep your eyes peeled and you might see a rare wild red kite soaring majestically over the iconic ruins of Kirkstall Abbey… The 12th century abbey has inspired poets and painters over the centuries and still has a haunting atmosphere, as you follow in the footsteps of its monks. Just across the road is Abbey House Museum, a gem of a family day out, with recreated Victorian streets and toys through the ages. Catch 22

a bite to eat at the Gatehouse Café – or pick up some fresh produce from the monthly deli market in the abbey cloisters – and then it’s a gentle walk back into Leeds along the canal towpath, looking out for more wildlife along the way.


visitleeds.co.uk ATTRACTIONS

We can spend hours lazing in Roundhay Park…

Chelsea Gardens, Roundhay Park

Meerkats at Tropical World.

…watching everyone having fun, or wandering around the beautifully planted and award-winning Chelsea Gardens inspired by Monet, the Alhambra in Spain and Leeds’ canal heritage. Or, we work up an appetite with a brisk walk around the lake, before enjoying lunch or dinner at The Mansion then paying a visit to the exotic animals in Tropical World.

With red deer running through the parkland and everything from flamingos to snowy owls among the 200 rare species in the bird garden, Lotherton Hall… …is another country house offering far more than fine china – although it has that too. Roam beyond the Edwardian gardens to discover nature-filled woodlands, before returning for afternoon tea in the Stables Café. Lotherton Hall Bird Garden

To get a taste of Leeds’ creative scene, join other culture vultures…

Holbeck Urban Village

…on one of the Art Walks on the first Wednesday of each month. Led by savvy curators Pavilion, the early-evening walks take in their pick of the city’s current exhibitions at venues such as Project Space Leeds, the Henry Moore Institute and Leeds Met Gallery. Stop off for a pint or a bite to eat first in Holbeck Urban Village: We recommend the Cross Keys. 23

Head upstairs to the Howard Assembly Room and you’ll even get a behind-the-scenes peek at Opera North in rehearsal.

28


visitleeds.co.uk CULTURE Shubert Ensemble, The Venue

No such thing as a free lunch? Don’t tell The Venue at Leeds College of Music… …where every Wednesday there’s snack-sized Lunchtime Concerts from classical, world and folk artists all free of charge. You can also enjoy the awe-inspiring sounds of Leeds Town Hall organ for free on Monday lunchtimes – it’s the largest of its kind in Europe and the Town Hall itself is a Victorian masterpiece.

Top comedians and their fans alike look forward to nights at the City Varieties…

Richard Herring, City Varieties

…a plush, Grade II listed Victorian music hall with a wonderfully intimate atmosphere – we love meeting stars in the Circle Bar after performances.

Publick Transport’s Discombobulated, The Carriageworks

The Electric Press on Millennium Square has everything you need for a great family evening out… …with a host of tasty restaurants next to the Carriageworks Theatre, where you’ll find plenty of affordable shows, along with events such as Banff Mountain Film Festival and the Emerge gala of new work.

We love to linger over a coffee or lunch in Opposite Café or Anthony’s Patisserie, people-watching and picking up fashion tips at the same time.

Map Ref: Leeds City Map G4 Situated in the heart of Leeds and showcasing international talent, Opera North is England’s award-winning national opera company. Vibrant and vivacious, the company prides itself on a fresh approach to opera. Also programming its own performance space in Leeds, the Howard Assembly Room, the company brings the most exciting musicians, performers, writers and film together in the North of England. The year begins with two of the greatest of Italian operas: Bellini’s Norma and Puccini’s Madama Butterfly. Brimming with glorious melodies, spellbinding arias and achingly beautiful duets, Norma’s famous ‘Casta Diva’ was made legendary by Maria Callas and Joan Sutherland. Madama Butterfly is one of the world’s best loved operas, with a heartbreaking story of love and betrayal, exquisite set and costumes, and rapturous music which has become universally popular outside the opera house.

May 2012 sees a major new production of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s great classic Carousel. Voted Best Musical of the 20th century by Time Magazine, it features some of the most powerfully moving songs ever written for the stage, including the immortal ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’, ‘If I Loved You’ and the joyful ‘June Is Bustin’ Out All Over’. In June 2012, the company performs the second part of its critically acclaimed Ring Cycle, Wagner’s Die Walküre. After the sell-out success of the first instalment, tickets are already in short supply. For more information, videos, interviews and music visit www.operanorth.co.uk M621, J 3, 1 mile

Located within walking distance of shops, supermarkets and all amenities, this detached house stands within its own gardens and private car park and is divided into two self-contained apartments, providing accommodation only two-and-a-half miles from Leeds city centre.

The address is within easy reach of Headingley Carnegie Stadium, Leeds United FC, Leeds General Infirmary, St James’s Hospital, Yorkshire Television, Leeds University, The Royal Armouries, and Leeds Bradford International Airport. The centre of Bradford is only nine miles away.

The ground floor apartment sleeps two persons in one double bedroom, whilst the maisonette above sleeps five persons in three bedrooms.

Our type of accommodation is recommended because unlike hotels and guest houses, these apartments have the advantage of being self-contained and private, and are virtually a home from home. The Tops was established in 1980 and is open all year.

Each unit has its own lounge with colour TV and DVD player, bathroom with bath and shower, full gas central heating, a fully-equipped kitchen including laundry and ironing facilities and all bedding and bed sheets are provided.
