Leeds is the proud home of Kirkstall Abbey, a ruined Cistercian monastery that was disestablished by Henry VIII and one of the city’s most famous historical attractions. The abbey was founded in 1152 by Abbot Alexander, and remained fully intact until the Dissolution of the monasteries in 1539. After changing ownership various times during the next 300 years the abbey was eventually sold to Colonel John north in 1889, who granted it to Leeds City Council, and was eventually opened to the public in 1895 after an extensive restoration project. Much of the ruins of the abbey remain standing today, surrounded by beautiful green park space where you will find walkers, cyclists and picnickers enjoying the fabulous scenery. The abbey is now a Grade I listed building, and the newly developed visitor centre includes a range of interactive exhibits showcasing the history of the abbey and providing a fascinating insight into the lives of the monks that once lived here.
The city provides some of the best nightlife venues in the UK, with a host of bars, restaurants and clubs to choose from whatever your taste. Cocktail lovers should head to The Alchemist in the Trinity Centre in the heart of the city, for an evening of cocktails with a special twist. As the name suggests, the theme of this bar is alchemy, with cocktails made with contraptions including Bunsen burners, test tubes and dry ice to provide a bit of a show as you watch your drink being made. The Alchemist also has an extremely well-priced food venue, with dishes such as Minute Steak cooked to perfection.
Have a wonderful time in Leeds!
