West Yorkshire Holiday Guide

With superb landscapes and inviting attractions, West Yorkshire is the perfect location for a short midweek break or weekend away. Whether you’re looking for excitement or simple relaxation, West Yorkshire has plenty of activities to suit all needs.

Leeds and Bradford are West Yorkshire’s two adjoining cities, both founded in the midst of the industrial revolution. These cities are now prime tourist destinations with museums, galleries and, of course, popular restaurants and bars all contributing to their appeal.

Beyond West Yorkshire’s two main cities is a landscape of wide open moorland countryside with small towns and cotton mill villages dotted throughout. The remnants of the wool industry is still visible throughout with rows of weavers’ cottages in the valleys across this Yorkshire countryside, brilliantly described by the famous Bronte sisters.

Accommodation in West Yorkshire

West Yorkshire accommodation caters for all, from fully integrated backpackers’ barns in the Yorkshire countryside to top class accommodation. If its spa boutique hotels you seek then look to West Yorkshires city hotel’s, or head to the countryside for your more down to earth family run guest houses.

When in West Yorkshire, get out and explore the wide open countryside, the perfect getaway from city life. With a selection of walks to choose from, let that inner rambler escape and enjoy what the Yorkshire countryside has to offer.

A Cultural Hotspot

If you enjoy museums and are keen to learn more of the history and culture of West Yorkshire then you will not be disappointed with a visit to the many museums in the area. Museums include The Royal Armouries in Leeds, National Media Museum in Bradford and the fantastic National Coal Mining Museum. Situated in Overton, the National Coal Mining Museum is a fantastic day out with numerous outbuildings to explore and interactive exhibitions that bring the whole mining story to life.

While in Leeds visit the local Kirkgate Market, believed to be the largest covered market in Europe. Playing host to over 800 traders selling everything from exotic food to fashion fabrics it makes for an excellent alternative experience, far better than that normal shopping trip.

Take the family to Yorkshire Sculpture Park. The site is spacious with plenty of wide open space for children to play in and a range of walking trails to choose from.

With Bradford recognised as the curry capital of Britain, this is clearly something you cannot miss. Bradford itself has a distinct and flourishing arts scene, with Bradford said to be the world’s first UNESCO City of Film. If you can squeeze a theatre visit into your trip you will not be disappointed.
