Top Reasons to Visit Leeds in 2018

Earlier this year Leeds was voted one of Europe’s top 5 destinations by Lonely Planet.  As it enters its bid to become European Capital of Culture in 2023 – there is a buzz in the air with new, creative openings, developments, and investments in the city. However, don’t wait until 2023 to join the fun. There are many reasons to visit this buzzing city in 2018 and enjoy a stay at our Leeds city centre hotel. Check out our top picks:


‘Tryanuary’

A concept that Leeds independent businesses get behind each year.  Instead of ‘Dryanuary’ you are encouraged to try something new.  Why not try a new craft beer in the working Northern Monk Brewery in Holbeck on the outskirts of the city?  Or try a new, specialty coffee at Laynes Espresso on New Station Street. Grab a bargain in the sales in the numerous boutiques in the iconic Corn Exchange. The New Ellington hotel in Leeds is the perfect base to ‘try’ a weekend away in Leeds.

Man Behind the Curtain

The One Michelin starred, Man Behind the Curtain restaurant by Chef Michael O’Hare is moving location to create a larger restaurant and bar space, in the vibrant Victoria Gate area of the city, near our comfortable Leeds hotel.  It may be changing location, however its slightly eccentric punk style and its perfectly executed dishes will remain.  With a three-month waiting list, start phoning today to secure a booking at one of Leeds’s most exciting restaurants. 

 

Strictly Come Dancing Tour


Leeds has a booming music scene and is a great place for live music, dancing and entertainment.  January sees BBC 1’s Strictly Come Dancing Tour come to Leeds Arena, close to our Leeds hotel.  Expect salsa, sparkles, sequins, show songs and stunning dancing as the stars from the show waltz their way around the dance floor – it will be a 10 from us!  It’s pure escapism on a breath-taking scale.

For the diary in early summer 2018 are two international sporting events, with the fourth Tour de Yorkshire returning to Leeds in May, plus the return of the ITU Triathlon in June. The Tour De Yorkshire 2018 sees top cyclists and sports people take part in a gruelling bike tour around the spectacular countryside of God’s Own Country. The ITU Word Triathlon series has Olympic medal winners the Brownlee Brothers, along with a mixture of professional and amateur sports people, take on the challenge of swim, bike ride and marathon.
