As the unofficial ‘capital’ of Yorkshire, Leeds has plenty to offer. The city centre combines a vibrant shopping district with an array of pubs, bars and restaurants which gives Leeds an excellent nightlife.
If British history is your thing, the Royal Armouries Museum displays the National Collection of Arms and Armour. Kirkstall Abbey, located four miles outside the city centre, is one of the best preserved medieval Cistercian abbeys in Britain.
Leeds is also home to Roundhay Park, one of the largest city parks in Europe. Explore one of the nine geology trails, the tropical butterfly house, or try your hand at golf on one of the two courses within the park’s grounds.
Leeds can be reached by train from Penistone – take the hourly service to Huddersfield, where you’ll find direct links to the city centre every 15 minutes.
