Though now one of the United Kingdom’s financial hubs, Leeds was once a largely manufacturing-based city. Guests at our hotels should tour Leeds’ industrial roots by visiting the Armley Mills Industrial Museum, the world’s largest textile museum, and then the water-powered Thwaite Mills. While you’re in the birthplace of Chippendale furniture, a trip to see the Temple Newsam House’s extensive collection is a must.
Whether you want to grab a pint at The Midnight Bell or enjoy a special treat at Anthony’s Patisserie in downtown Leeds, our accommodations keep you near the city’s best sights and tastes. Mojo, a rock and roll bar, is the perfect after-dinner entertainment spot to be seen on the dance floor. But if you’re into a more laid-back haunt, try out the North Bar’s combination of beer, art and music.
Considered Yorkshire’s contemporary culture center, Leeds offers hotel guests a glimpse of art both new and old. The Leeds Art Gallery—filled with contemporary British masterpieces—is a must, followed by the Royal Armouries and Harewood House (the Queen’s cousin’s residence). The performing arts are strong here, as well, and can be seen at the Grand Theater, O2 Academy and Leeds City Varieties, a Victorian-era music hall.
