The Leed’s Arena’s unique "super theatre" style is designed to enhance the arena experience, with all seats facing the stage and high quality acoustics providing the best sound experience in the UK. The style creates a more intimate atmosphere with reduced viewing distances inside the venue which has a capacity of 13,000.
After an exciting night at the arena, stop by The Gin Garden at our Leeds luxury hotel and enjoy one of the many different gins or perhaps a cocktail. The bar offers an array of classics, fruity and seasonally inspired concoctions to keep you amused and entertained. The New Ellington also serves a carefully selected range of wines and beers.
The New Ellington is a great hotel to stay in. The rooms are very spacious and the staff are the best I have ever come across. They made us feel like part of a big family and were very helpful. I will definitely be back for another visit.
