The armouries is so good, unexpectedly eldritch af
The Abbey House Museum is an interesting little place and it’s next to Kirkstall Abbey which is a cool old ruin, could be full of bored kids though as it’s summer holidays. Can stop for a point at the Kirkstall Bridge Inn after.
Have a poke about under the railway station and see a massive river flowing under these huge dark archways.
I haven’t been in years but the Corn Exchange is beautiful and has a wonderful roof. Worth having a look at.
oh god yeah, this. If there is a better beer snack than their okra fries then I certainly haven’t found it. And the Bundo Chaat is like dirty nachos, but somehow even better.
snooze on the paneer tikka at your peril
People have already listed things I love about the place, if you’ve got time the Hepworth Gallery in Wakefield, the National Science and Media Museum In Bradford and the Yorkshire Sculpture park are worth a day trip if you’ve got time and that’s your bag.
Tropical World has lizards and butterflys if it’s raining.
It’s been mentioned for food but the market is just a brilliant building in itself to have a wander round.
Yeah above bundobust and the others mentioned there’s a couple good places in the market. Can’t remember the name but had a brilliant ful at one of them. Kanassa (veggie Colombian food) used to be there and do pop ups sometimes - see if they’re doing anything as they’re great.
Tropical World is a nice trip.
Oh also - the chilli sauce shop is great and the guy that runs it is lovely. Poco and Smak round Burley way are great too and there’s a brewery up there if you’re in the area
Did the Yorkshire Sculpture Park on the way back from holiday the other week, it’s really really great. Be prepared to walk a long way, though, it’s massive and some of the pieces are bloody miles away.
Is there a way to get to it without a car?
Go to Owt in the Corn Exchange. Cool building to look at anyway and the food is absolutely sensational - open for breakfast and through the afternoon/early evening, genuinely can’t recommend it enough.
Few food recommendations here (including Owt) if we haven’t overwhelmed you already
You can get train to Wakefield (20mins) and then bus to YSP (40mins).
i like colours may vary
Currently in the middle of moving I think
oh i like the big building it’s in. i guess Village instead for that sort of thing? i preferred when it was in the corn exchange though
Interesting that Home was included, I thought it was just ok for the price (i.e. expensive), maybe it was just an off night
You Stupid Prick?
