Dress, shop and explore like a 19th century Leodensian, in the city's immersive time-travelling museum.
Once the gatehouse of 12th century Kirkstall Abbey, Abbey House is a place used to travelling through time periods. Fitting, then, that it should become a place where visitors can quite literally take a step through the ages, at the Abbey House Museum. Meander through Victorian Leeds in the museum's recreated, shop-lined streets. Or get some century-old retail therapy at Stephen Harding Gate, a Victorian high street, then relax at the Rover Inn, a faithfully reconstructed watering hole.
Above all, the Abbey is a great chance for all the family to experience life as it once was. There's a huge collection of artefacts from the Victorian era, from rocking horses and irons to clothes and jewellery.
