Horsforth Museum - Horsforth...
Horsforth Museum - Horsforth was once described as the largest village in England and has somehow managed to retain some of its village like identity, character and sense of community.
The Museum aims to reflect this heritage in its interesting exhibits which are drawn from all aspects of life in and around Horsforth and have a great nostalgia and educational value.
The Museum, which opened to the public in July 1998, is situated at The Green in the heart of the old village.
By car, Leeds is handily placed on both the M1 North-South motorway and the M62 East-West motorway.
By rail it has good connections in almost every direction.
By air, Leeds/Bradford airport is convenient, though it is not such a major 'international' airport as Manchester. However, Manchester is only about 1 hour away by road or rail, so that's a pretty good arrival point.
The Best Bistro in England?
An ecclectic mix of dishes with surely something to satisfy everyone, the menu is well thought out and every dish I have ever had there has only one word of comment to go with it - SUPERB. Specials are always on and the menu seems to feature new stuff regurlarly plus great vegetarian dishes.
Located on a busy street but very close to bars, rugby/cricket ground and Lounge cinema in Headingley. Parking can be a little bit of a hassle on weekends nights.
Owned by a couple who seem to be always there hosting and serving, the atmosphere is friendly and attentive. Dont be put off by its shop front-type exterior.
Early bird menu is a good deal. Have a look on the website but be sure to book especially on weekends because its busy.
All in all, it is an excellent place to eat as a couple or with family and friends. They clearly know how to provide good food and want you to enjoy it.
Go now!!!! I have something different every time I go so this is tough but the Deep fried Brie wedges starter are very very good.
Kirkgate market is set in an impressive Edwardian building, make sure that you look at the ceiling when you go in. It started as an open market in the 1820's and moved to it's present location in the 1850's. It has been rebuild at times due to bombings in the war and later by a fire. It is apparently Europe's largest indoor market (according to Leeds City Council). The building is impressive on the outside and in the inside. This place is worth a visit.
Another fact, most people have heard of Marks and Spencer. Michael Marks, a Russian born Polish refugee opened a stall at Kirkgate Market in 1884, before going on to co found Marks and Spencer.
It has been extended at the back and has 400 stalls inside and a further 200 outside. It is open 6 days a week, closed on Sundays.
You might see me there buying my vegetables and meat.
"Leeds through the day"
Leeds as got to be one of the best citys in england, always something to do so you never get bored, through the day leeds city centre is packed with shoppers, if your into your fashion its must, endless shops, bars, restaurants, nightclubs basically anything you want you can get. Women would love it, me personally i cant do with shopping for to long get a bit bored. You can even party through the day in a few nightclubs (stinkys: my house) its not for the faint hearted mind, its a bit hardcore! plenty of hotels in the city centre if your thinking about coming for a weekend and you can find b+b's on the outskirts of leeds for the cheaper option, its only a short taxi ride into the heart of the city. Theres plenty of museums if your into thing like that.
