SPOILT FOR CHOICE
Leeds' reputation as one of the most vibrant, sophisticated cities in the country is well deserved. A plethora of fine dining restaurants satisfies every palette, while a mix of hip bars and clubs offer the opportunity for laid back lounging or high-energy partying.
For culture vultures, there are quality museums and galleries such as the Royal Armouries and City Art Gallery, and the West Yorkshire Playhouse offers a diverse programme of performances.
Shopping in Leeds is second to none, with its specialist boutiques, designer stores and ornate arcades. And if you feel the need to escape the metropolis, you can hire a boat in Roundhay Park, watch the cricket in Headingley, or visit a nearby country estate such as Harewood House or Temple Newsham.
