Why take the train to Leeds?
Leeds is the only English city outside London with its own repertory theatre, opera house and ballet companies. Leeds Art Gallery has one of the UK's best collections of contemporary British art (The Times) and the city is home to the Royal Armouries, the national collection of arms and armour.
There are more listed buildings in Leeds than in any English city outside London, with highlights including the Victoria Quarter, Leeds Corn Exchange and Harewood House, home of the Queen's cousin.
The Rough Guide to Britain named shopping in Leeds as one of the top thirty things to do in the UK, and with five miles of shopping streets and one of the country's largest pedestrianised zones it's easy to see why. Upon arriving on one of our trains to Leeds you will notice there is an excellent nightlife scene, with numerous restaurants and independent bars. Leeds is also one of the UK's best cities for dining out according to the Which? Good Food Guide.
A great sporting heritage is built around world-famous stadiums like Headingley and Elland Road, and there's plenty to get involved in yourself too, from world-class golf to some of the country's best mountain biking.
Leeds also has one of the busiest train stations outside central London. As you would expect in a major national, as well as regional, transport hub, Leeds Train Station is modern and efficient.
