5 of the best things to do in Leeds

We love Leeds – the list of things to do in this great city is endless! But if you’ve got limited time – we’ve narrowed this down to the top 5 things to do in Leeds.

Roundhay Park

Roundhay Park isn’t just 700 acres of landscaped beauty but the grounds are packed with meerkats (yes meerkats), a park train, tropical gardens, lakes, woodlands – easily one of the most impressive parks in the UK. Their website is very informative and has recommended walks – plan your visit here.

Harewood House

We often mention Harewood House in our ‘What’s On’ blogs as they always have something going on! Inside the stately house there is a great selection of art to see, and the house is set in 100 acres of beautiful countryside which plays host to a farm and penguins. Find out more here.

Ruins of Kirkstall Abbey

Kirkstall Abbey and the Abbey House Museum invites guests to wander through the ruins of a Cistercian monastery and learn about how the monks lived.  The abbey itself is 900 years old and is absolutely beautiful – try and catch it on a snowy day to see it at it’s finest. Plan your visit here.
