Whether you’re a die-hard football fan or not, feeling the buzz in the air during a match at Leeds United F.C. Stadium is an unforgettable experience. Alternatively, for a slightly more subdued evening, head to the popular Grade II-listed Grand Theatre and Opera House, an elegant Victorian venue with a capacity of 1,550. The theatre is also home to the Howard Assembly Room, which regularly hosts avant-garde arts performances.
Trinity Leeds offers over 120 shops, restaurants and cafés in a sprawling million-square-foot space right in the heart of the city. For one-off retail therapy, don’t miss the Grand Arcade, a Leeds landmark of independent shopping since Victorian times.
The multi-million pound Royal Armouries hosts the National Collection of Arms and Armour, with over 8,500 weapons and military objects across six themed galleries: War, Tournament, Oriental, Self-Defence, Hunting, and Peace. This free exhibition is especially popular with families.
For something a little different, Leeds also has a multitude of interactive attractions for groups of adults, such as the thrilling Locked In Games, the Northern Snooker Centre & Stateside American Bar and Pole Position Indoor Karting.
