Leeds, a major English city
The City of Leeds is second only to London in the legal and financial centre in England. It’s located just one hundred eighteen miles from the Medusa Juice Vape shop in Peterborough and one hundred thirty miles from the store in King’s Lynn. You can load up on the premiere e-liquids and grab some new gear before enjoying the area that is Leeds.
The city of Leeds has the fourth largest student population and dates back to the 5th century when it was known as Loidis. It began as a forested area in the Celtic kingdom of Elmet. Since then, the area has been prominent in the manufacture and trade of wool, and later, it was well known for its industrial jobs.
Royalists and beyond
A strong Royalist community during the English Civil War, Leeds grew and prospered over the centuries to become a city with the most diverse economy of all of the United Kingdom’s main employment centres. It’s considered the cultural, financial and commercial heart of West Yorkshire. Leeds also is the third largest manufacturing centre in all of England.
Located on the valley of the River Aire, Leeds is both lovely and diverse in geography and along with that, diverse in culture. It’s also home to the oldest film in existence and Soda Water was invented in Leeds.
When you visit Leeds, you will want to make sure you have time to fully appreciate it and to get you started, I have comprised a list of ‘must see’ places and things to do.
First off, you don’t want to miss a tour of the Royal Armouries. After that, depending on where your interests lie, there’s Roundhay Park, Temple Newsam and Kirkstall Abbey. Harewood House, Lotherton Hall and Leeds Corn Exchange are all good places to visit as well.
If you’re interested in Museums, there’s plenty to choose from and some of the most visited are Leeds City Museum, Museum of The History of Science, Technology and Medicine, and of course the Royal Armoury Museum.
While taking the kids to enjoy a playground or two you have ample opportunity to enjoy the best e-liquids from Medusa Juice. If you just can’t get to one of the shops in Peterborough, King’s Lynn or Norwich, be sure to get online and order to your heart’s content. Be sure to check out the new line of CBD Hemp Oil vapes. You won’t want to miss out on those.
Art and more
Art plays a big part in Leeds and as you’d expect, there’s various galleries to visit, some of those include White Cloth Gallery, The Craft Gallery and Design Gallery, Stanley and Audrey Burton Gallery and the Henry Moore Institute.
Leeds has the second highest population of local authority districts in England and is second only to Birmingham. Over sixty-five percent of the district is greenbelt land. It’s situated on the Eastern side of the Pennines and is one of the driest cities in the United Kingdom.
Some other places you may enjoy spending your time visiting while in Leeds are the County Arcade, Leeds and Liverpool Canal, Park Square, Millenium Square, and Yeadon Town Hall. Leeds Civic Hall is most definitely worth a trip and you are very likely to find students playing chess on the giant Chess boards located outside of the Library just across the way from it. Harewood Castle is also worth a look if you have time.
For family entertainment, there’s Escape Rooms, Cinemas, Bowling Alleys and all sorts, amongst those are Tick Tock Unlock, Locked In Games, Live For Today Adventures, which are all escape rooms and then for cinemas we have Hyde Park Picture House, Everyman Cinema Leeds, Cottage Road Cinema and Vue Cinema. There are several bowling alleys like Roxy Lanes Leeds, Hollywood Bowl Leeds, and MFA Bowl Leeds. If that isn’t enough to fill your hours, you can also try some of the local playgrounds, such as Horsforth Hall Park, Potternewton Park, and Eddie Catz Leeds.
Leeds has several lovely gardens you can visit and these are Tropical World, York Gate Garden, Canal Gardens, Potternewton Park and Mandela Garden. You will also find a lovely garden at Harewood House. I can highly recommend any of these for a lovely time.
There is also a few reserves that are noteworthy and you may wish to include these on your visit. The Donkey Sanctuary Leeds, Rodley Nature Reserve, Hetchell Woods and Pompocali, and Townclose Hills Nature Reserve.
If you fancy a game of chance, why not visit Victoria Gate Casino or Grosvenor Leeds Westgate? Or perhaps you’d prefer to laugh and there are a couple of good comedy clubs to choose from as well, they are Jongleurs Comedy Club, Chortle Kombat Comedy and The Discount Comedy Checkout – Improv Show.
If you want some place to showcase your own talents, try Mix Karaoke Bar. There’s also a couple of good gay clubs, these are The Mix and The Viaduct Showbar, so as you can see, no matter what you’re looking for it can be found in Leeds.
Leeds has a world class university and mover and shakers from all over the world have attended as well as our own Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge.
So, if you’re planning a trip to Leeds, that should get your trip started off nicely, but to really finish it in style, be sure to take a day and go see one of the three Medusa Juice stores located in either King’s Lynn, Peterborough or Norwich. Be sure to stock up on your favourite e-liquids and gear and while you’re at it, why not treat yourself to a new tee shirt or hoodie from the fashionable and hip new clothing line?
