    Central location and good value


    The Discovery Inn couldn't be in a better location if you're travelling to Leeds by train - it is literally a stone's throw from the main railway station. It is also extremely good value - I booked myself a single room (admittedly on an off-peak night) for £30. A very basic buffet-style continental breakfast is an additional £3.75. The building is old, with some character and several eccentricities - for example Floor 7 is on the, erm, third floor, as is the main reception desk!

    On first sight my room was fine, very clean, with a TV, coffee and tea facilities, a hair dryer, bedside lamp and an alarm clock/radio. The bathroom was also very clean and roomy. The water was piping hot. On the downside the bathroom plug was stuck closed, so slowly filled with mucky water. The pillow on the bed was thin and uncomfortable.

    Wireless internet is available but you have to pay extra for it. There was also a computer in the lobby available for use, at £1 for 20 minutes.

    All in all, the experience was fine, the staff were friendly and, for the price, the hotel was quite adequate for a good night's sleep.

    Directions: Immediately west of Leeds main railway station.

    Reasonable Priced Accommodation in City Centre!


    This is rare tip of a Leeds Hotel/Accommodation Review because I live in Leeds and usually wouldn't stay in a hotel.

    I received the following reviews from a VT Member and a friend of mine who stayed at The Discovery Inn when visiting Leeds.

    "It was ok but breakfast was charged!" (Ruth, a friend, March 2011)

    "Would recommend Discovery anyway!" (Suvanki, VT Member, May 2011)

    Unique Quality: There are 80 bedrooms and breakfast is available at 3.75 gbp (October 2011)

    Directions: Adjacent to Leeds City Station

    Next to the railway station


    If you like ancient buildings with a "different" shape, far from the exclusive but plain modern ones this is your hotel. Enclosed into an old thin curved building -but very nice- this hotel shows a strange inner geometry, i.e: reception is at the third floor while breakfast room is at the first one and elevator only reaches fourth floor -reaching the fifth one is through the stairs, as it was my case-. Nevertheless it has a warmth and comfortable atmosphere that you will not find everywhere. Room was ok, clean, comfortable, without luxuries and bathroom worked well so I have nothing against it.

    I chose this place after having been searching hotels at York -one of my leading destinies- because I discovered Leeds had much more -and better- hotel offer and prices are better too. And Discovery Inn, i.e., being cheaper had even breakfast included!.

    Unique Quality: I think the closest hotel to Leeds railway station, which was key for my trip. Having a Britrail Pass and a list of dozens places to visit it was undoubtedly the top option and I can say it worked perfectly for my purpose.

I'd rather go to York as well. You'll find plenty of shopping there, and there are far more central sites to visit. Have a look at my York page for ideas: walking the city walls, museums, Clifford's Tower, the Shambles and, of course, the beautiful Minster.

You will have no problems at all finding make-up shops in's a pretty big shopping area with all the usual chains etc.

will tell you about the central attractions, other than shopping.

You can get the coach from Hull to Leeds (last one returns at 18:20). Journey takes 1h 40m, 9GBP return. Book online on Coaches to York from Hull mostly go via Leeds, and the time the journey takes means a daytrip by coach is not feasible. will give you train times and fares for both journeys.

Transpennine Express have a sale on on line tickets at the moment and you can travel on some Hull to Leeds trains for just £5.00. Call in at the Interchange in Hull or have a look at the website.
Leeds is good for shopping but other than that there is only the Royal Armories military museum and the medical museum to see. The medical museum is quite interesting - have a look at - it is actually more interesting than it seems.
Other than that why not take a train to Saltaire - this is a living Victorian village with shops and art galleries - have a look at the Saltaire website - there are also some pages here on VT/ You take a Skipton bound train (every 15 minutes) and there is a station at Saltaire village.

Travel Tips for Leeds

City centre shopping

by fax

Definitely shopping! Leeds has all the top names such as Harvey Nichols and has lots of covered shopping areas. These range from modern malls to wonderful Victorian arcades.

Shopping centres can also be found out of town, the best being the White Rose Centre - which is easily accessible via the M62 and M1/M621.

A major plus for Leeds is much of the centre is pedestrianised.


by steventilly

Wensleydale - one of the most beautiful dales and one of the most famous too, if only for its Cheese which is known throughout the country. There are a number of great attractions on Wenselydale, from the market towns of Leyburn, Aysgarth and Hawes, the waterfalls of Aysgarth and Hardraw to the medieval fortress of Castle Bolton and the sheer beauty of the landscapes.

Veg and rather Special

by davidcross about Hansa's

This is a vegetarian [vegan dishes provided] Indian restaurant run and staffed entirely by women - though not discriminating against male customers thank Heaven!
It is not the cheapest food available but it is certainly not the most expensive either and it is delicious. The dishes vary a bit from time to time but I have never had a bad one yet.


by alyf1961 about ST IVES PASTY SHOP

The pasties at St Ives pasty shop are a real taste of Cornwall. The pasties are made in Cornwall and baked in Leeds. They come in a whole range of flavours, traditional, Balti, cheese and onion, corned beef, steak and stout, cheese and bacon and many more. There is also a range of sausage rolls, baguettes, Panninis and cakes. Vegetarians are catered for too. MY FAVOURITE ARE THE DELICIOUS BACON AND MUSHROOM BREAKFAST BAGUETTES.

Millenium square - university quarter

by Airpunk

Millenium square is surrounded by nice university buildings and is a place for arts and culture. Musicians and other artists use this place as a stage. You will find street arts as well as larger events. If you are there, don't forget to visit the Nelson Mandela gardens: A small nice oasis within the busy city center of Leeds.
