Travel Tips for Leeds

One of Britain's best...

by leeds

One of Britain's best preserved abbeys, Kirkstall Abbey was founded in 1152 by a party of Cistercian monks from Fountains Abbey and was closed down in November 1539 in the Dissolution of religious houses ordered by Henry VIII. The monks were pensioned-off, the roofs stripped of lead and some buildings converted for agricultural use. Many famous artists such as JMW Turner, Thomas Girtin and Moses Griffith came to paint Kirkstall Abbey's picturesque ruins. Today large parts of the Abbey can still be seen and explored free of charge.
Kirkstall Abbey is one of the most important buildings historically in Leeds. After its dissolution in 1539 the abbey’s windows, roofs and much of the stonework were steadily removed for use in local building projects and this helps explain its current partially-ruined appearance. Nevertheless, Kirkstall is still preferred by many historians to other Cistercian abbeys such as those found at Fountains and Rievaulx. Kirkstall Abbey's most impressive features include;

The Church:

Beginning at the west end, the view along the church's entire 200 foot length is unbroken, with 8 huge columned arches. At services, there was a strict order from back to front. Closest to the west door is the Nave, where lay brothers and lay visitors sat. Closer to the front were aged and infirm monks, then monks and novices in the choir.


The Tower:
Not the original 12th Century structure, which only attained the same height as the church roof in keeping with the ideals of austerity and simplicity promoted by the founding fathers of the Cisterian monastic order. In 1509- 27 a new tower was built. The north-west side collapsed in 1779.

The Transept:

On either side of the tower providing the important crucifix shape to the church. The North Transept doorway gave access to the cemetery after funeral services. A fascinating feature of the South Transept is the 'night stairs' used by monks to reach the choir from their dormitory for night vigils.

The Cloisters and Chapter House:

The Cloisters form one of the most tranquil corners of Leeds, a square with covered walkways where monks would sit reading and writing. The Chapter House has many carved arches and pillars and some old stone coffins.

Leeds has good bus services (there are about 90m trips a year) and is also linked into long distance services from the rest of West Yorkshire. The city is one of the first in the country to implement a trial of guided bus routes which allow buses to travel along specially converted central reservations to help reduce and avoid traffic congestion.
Leeds city bus station is located on New York Street, LS2 7HU. A new National Express coach terminal has been built adjoining the bus station. This has 10 stands and a waiting area with a small buffet bar. The passenger concourse area for the coach terminal is fully integrated with the new bus station. National Express Coaches have around 100 departures a day from Leeds, serving more than 1200 destinations.

Extensive refurbishment has taken place to provide a combined central bus and coach station with new facilities. The new layout is designed for maximum safety. It offers total segregation of vehicles and passengers with 26 bus stands leading directly on to a new concourse designed to provide a full range of amenities. There is a new Metro / City Council Travel and Information Centre, toilets with baby care facilities, a cafeteria and a range of shops.

Leeds is the hub of the local West Yorkshire rail network which contains 65 local Metro Train stations. The majority of these have direct services to Leeds. About 7,000 people arrive at the City Station in the morning peak period.

METRO (West Yorkshire Traffic Service) aims for half hourly or better services all day on all lines, and this is achieved in Leeds.

Take in a football game!
Leeds United play every week, except mid summer. Tickets are hard to find though.
Nearby Bradford play in the First Division and getting a ticket is a lot more straightforward

Leeds - Little London!

by Travel_Fred

"Leeds - Little London"

Let me cut straight to the point - Leeds is a great place to be. It offers great food, great football, great gambling and great people. And yes, great shopping as well (which means that you can keep your girlfriend busy whilst doing all the other things).
