Follow the Leeds Country Way to the stately home at Harewood House, and spend the afternoon ambling between grand chambers and spotting flamingos in the bird garden. Back in the city centre, enjoy sculptures by Yorkshire-born Henry Moore at Leeds Art Gallery and browse armour and hunting weapons at Leeds Royal Armouries. And there could be a few celebrity footballers lurking behind the scenes at Elland Road on a Leeds United stadium tour.

Trinity Leeds is a shoppers’ paradise with three floors of sparkling arcades filled with international brands, or browse independent boutiques, jewellers and gift shops in grand Victorian surroundings at Leeds Corn Exchange and designer shops in the glamorous Victoria Quarter.

For family days out, desert meerkats and giant Niger catfish await at Tropical World, set in the peaceful gardens of Roundhay Park, the story of medicine is told in a family-friendly way at the Thackray Medical Museum and see the Salt Mill and workers’ housing in the preserved industrial village of Saltaire – a UNESCO World Heritage site.

The region is also home to the largest railway museum in the world – the National Railway Museum in York, which documents more than 300 years of rail history with locomotives, paraphernalia, photos and artwork.
