Best Things To Do & Days Out In Leeds

There are loads of cool things to do in Leeds to keep your family entertained on your next day out. Let's take a look!

If the Yorkshire weather drives you indoors the Leeds City Museum offers hands-on exhibitions, games and displays.

The Royal Armories is home to over 2,500 pieces of arms or armour from around the world across six galleries. Practice your aim at the crossbow shooting gallery or act the fool in the Jester Yard play area. In the summer months sit back and enjoy jousting, falconry and horsemanship.

If you prefer living life in the fast lane then the Teamsport Indoor Karting venue will get your engine running. Race your family around the 580m indoor track to see who will be crowned the ultimate Speed Racer!

Let’s not forget about our furry, four legged friends. Meet donkeys and mules at The Leeds Donkey Sanctuary, or just 2 miles outside the city is Meanwood Valley Urban Farm home to a wide variety of fluffy farmyard friends.

Over the river Call Lane is well known for its restaurants and stop off at the Kirkgate Market to wander around the hundreds of indoor and outdoor stalls for a souvenir of a fun, family day out.
