Why take the train to Leeds?

Leeds is perfect for a day trip or a weekend away. Its irresistible mix of old and new means there's something for everyone.

The only English city outside London with its own repertory theatre, opera house and ballet companies, there are more listed buildings in Leeds than in any English city outside of the capital.

With five miles of shopping streets and one of the country’s largest pedestrian zones, it’s easy to see why “The Rough Guide to Britain” named shopping in Leeds as one of the top thirty things to do in the UK. Visitors get the train to Leeds to enjoy the excellent nightlife, as well as the numerous restaurants and independent bars. Named one of the UK’s best cities for dining out according to the “Which? Good Food Guide”, there’s plenty to choose from.

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.
