Enjoy a mid-week break in Leeds

Tuesday 01st March 2022

With TransPennine Express services, Leeds is less than an hour from Manchester and under 25 minutes from York. Liverpool and Newcastle are not far out of reach too, making Leeds the perfect destination for a day-trip or city break this spring. Travel mid-week to avoid the crowds of this busy city and have a more relaxing time. 

There’s world-class world-class culture on every corner and plenty of independent shops and eateries you won’t find anywhere else. It’s worth visiting for the shopping alone, with all the luxury brands under the breath-taking stained-glass roof of the stunning Victoria Arcades and the high-street brands in Trinity Leeds. By visiting mid-week you’ll avoid the weekend crush and have more time to browse at your leisure. For the art-lovers, Leeds’ galleries and street art have loads on show, and the city’s museums are a treasure trove for the whole family.

Leeds is the Foodie Capital of the North. The vibrant streets are filled with cool and casual bars and exclusive dining experiences. And it’s far easier to get at table during the quieter mid week evenings. For flavours from around the world try Trinity Kitchen and Kirkgate Market. You walk everywhere with ease, from the universities to the docks, stopping by one of the many coffee shops on your way.

Whether you’re going to see Stormzy at the O2 Academy, an indie gig at Headrow House, or a showing of Macbeth or Casanova, there’s performances and events galore throughout the year. And your more likely to secure tickets if you avoid the weekends. If you fancy staying over, Leeds has an amazing range of places to relax at the end of the day, from luxury hotels to cosy B&Bs with lots of offers to entice you to stay during the week, so you can make the most of your visit.
