With such fabulous scenery and brilliant cultural attractions it's small wonder that West Yorkshire is a popular holiday destination. With the wilder moorlands of the west and north the inspiration for much of the Bronte sisters' literary efforts, and the east bordering on the Pennines, this is a county of great scenic diversity. Sports enthusiasts come for the multitude of outdoor challenges and pleasure walkers for the network of hiking trails.
If you're more interested in culture and history, West Yorkshire has a proud industrial heritage, and cities such as Leeds are full of interesting things. There are diverse accommodation options here too. If you're staying in Leeds you should try and get along to the famous Carriageworks Theatre in the city to take in a show or two.
Leeds Hotels for the Carriageworks Theatre
The Leeds Carriageworks Theatre overlooks Millennium Square so it's easy to find from your Leeds hotel base in the city. If you're just passing through there are plenty of places to park and the theatre is well signposted. The theatre gets its name from the old Victorian building into which it is built, which originally made horse-drawn carriages. Today it is a lively and exciting focus for the community, tapping and promoting the local talent for which Leeds is famous. It also plays host to touring productions, both national and international, so there's always something going on here.
