Get bowled over in Leeds

Leeds, West Yorkshire

Join the Barmy Army and enjoy cricketing action at Headlingley, walk in the Dales or be knocked for six by some of the best British art and sculpture.

With multiple top flight tests and one day international’s being played out at Headingley, make sure you get your spot booked at Yorkshire’s Country Cricket Ground this summer. Pack the sun cream and the hat and settle in for the 2nd Investec Test Match in May, England v New Zealand Friday 29th May – Tuesday 2nd June and the Royal London One Day International with England taking on the might of the Aussies in September.

If your time in Leeds coincides with the Rugby World Cup, wander down to the Millennium Square, the focal point for the rugby fanzone, where there will be plenty of entertainment and events plus massive screens for your viewing pleasure.

After all the tension and adrenalin make sure you take some time out and explore the beautiful countryside around Leeds. The Dales Highway is the gateway to 90 miles of paths through glorious Yorkshire countryside.

Give your voice a rest from all the cheering and let your other senses get a workout with some calming art and sculpture at the Henry Moore Institute and Leeds Art Gallery which holds what has been described as the best collection of British 20th century art outside London.
