November is a great time to visit Leeds. There is an air of excitement and expectancy as winter draws in and preparations for the festive season begin. There are several free events and things to do throughout the city, which will spread wonder throughout the winter days and long nights. The New Ellington, Leeds hotel is a perfect base to explore the delights of the city.
The annual switching on of the Christmas Lights is an event not to be missed - with live music, entertainment, a funfair, celebrity guests and fireworks - the 2017 switch-on aims to be the biggest ever. Located in the Victoria Gardens on the Headrow and attracting over 20,000 revellers it’s a great way to start the countdown to Christmas. Taking place on 9th November at 6:45pm just minutes from our Leeds hotel.
Leeds Art Gallery, also on the Headrow near our Leeds hotel, has just completed a year-long renovation of the Victorian building’s central court and roof. Open to the public again it has a glorious collection of renowned 20th-century art with many exhibitions to explore. After browsing the collections, enjoy a pot of tea and cake in the tiled hall café, a grand and iconic room, with a stunning backdrop of ornate tiles and columns. The floor to ceiling windows allows the winter sun to stream through, making it a tranquil place to relax away from the winter elements. General admission to the gallery is free Tuesday to Sunday.
