On Sunday 17th February I’m going to Doncaster for a football match and will be coming back the following day from Leeds. I know there are a number of Leeds DiSers. Any recommendations on what to visit etc? I’ll be heading back to London at 5pm.
I’ve just moved here, so will be keeping my eye on this thread too for any recommendations.
My knowledge hasn’t got much further than pubs and bars that seem good so far - Duck and Drake, North Bar and The Angel are all decent/in the centre. If you’re here on the 17th and you’re up for it check if there’s anyone good playing Brudenell, which is a bit of a local institution. This place - http://www.caravanseraileeds.co.uk/ - is really good, cheap middle-eastern food which you can either take away or eat in a small casual restauranty bit upstairs.
Daytime-wise, my knowledge is way sketchier. Royal Armouries Museum - https://royalarmouries.org/venue/royal-armouries-museum/ - is free and in a decent spot on the docks, particularly if it’s a nice day. Have to say I wasn’t blown away by it when I visited, but it’s interesting enough.
Bit of a lie in and then Laynes espresso near the train station for a nice coffee and breakfast after the pre work rush has finished. Have a mooch around the city centre, the victoria quarter, market and corn exchange are all nice architecturally. Think the Gallery and Museum are closed on a Monday Go to Bundobust for lunch, few small plates and some beers. Probably nip up to whitelocks for another pint or two then get a couple of train beers from little leeds beer house in the corn exchange.
Cheers for that. Going on a Monday may not have been the best of plans.
Currently I’m staying in Doncaster on the Sunday night (seem to be a few decent pubs). as I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to take bag into the ground or not. But the hotel is cancellable so could just go straight to Leeds and book something there.
