If you're stuck for a suitable destination during your next break, West Yorkshire has everything you need for a fun and inspirational holiday. The landscapes are delightful, varied and often wild, and the major cities like Leeds, Wakefield and Huddersfield are full of character and culture. Visit the stomping ground of the Bronte sisters at Haworth in the west, or enjoy the gardens and antiques of Harewood House in the north. There's plenty of industrial heritage in the form of canals, mills and magnificent museum collections, and plenty of places to stay while you're here too. From West Yorkshire hotels to bed and breakfasts and a vast choice of guesthouses, you'll always find a hearty Yorkshire welcome here. No trip to the county would be complete without a visit to Leeds and its popular attraction, the famous Corn Exchange.
Leeds Hotels for the Corn Exchange
Leeds Corn Exchange operated originally, as the name suggests, as a traditional centre for the buying and selling of corn. From its opening in 1863 right through to the early 1990s it continued to function as such. Today it is a popular city venue for the general public, packed with vibrant cafés, shops, bars and restaurants, all housed in this magnificent Grade I listed building redolent of its Victorian heyday. Any hotel in Leeds will be close enough that you can drop in to the famous Corn Exchange for a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon on the town.
Visit the Leeds Corn Exchange with West Yorkshire Hotels
You'll easily find the Corn Exchange from your Leeds hotel accommodation. It is conveniently located right in the historic heart of the city on Kirkgate, one of the oldest streets in town. Designed by Cuthbert Brodrick, a world-famous Hull architect, it dominated the area when it was first opened for business and is still an imposing edifice, radiating style and self-confidence. It's nice to know that a building originally designed for the bartering of oats, barley, hops, wheat and other essentials is still happily functioning as a thriving retail centre. The great domed roof is one of its most stunning features.
