Pocket Guide: First Direct Arena First Direct Arena Hotels

West Yorkshire is a wonderful county that's popular with tourists for a variety of reasons. Those who love outdoor pursuits are attracted to its varied landscapes of hills, river valleys and heath lands, ideally suited to everything from walking to white-water rafting. Culture vultures find the county's great cities and ancient towns to be packed with interest, and clubbers enjoy the buzzing nightlife of centres such as Leeds.

There are entertainment options aplenty on offer here, and every kind of dining opportunity in an ethnically diverse cultural environment. The choice of hotels in West Yorkshire is also very wide, and you'll find a great range of B&Bs and guesthouses as well. The county's main city is Leeds, which cannot be missed. Be sure to check the listings for the First Direct Arena, known for world class entertainment, while you are there.

A Leeds Hotel for the First Direct Arena

The First Direct Arena, formerly the Leeds Arena, has a unique fan-shaped design and is the major general entertainment showcase for the city. Opening in 2013 with a sell-out performance from Elton John, the arena has a capacity of almost 14,000. Other star turns have included the likes of Rod Stewart and the Kaiser Chiefs. If you're looking for a great night out and you're based in a West Yorkshire hotel close by, the First Direct Arena beats all the local competition hands down. It has an extremely central location on Claypit Lane in the city centre, and with over 7,000 parking spaces in the immediate vicinity you'll have no trouble finding a space.

Enjoy the First Direct Arena with West Yorkshire Hotels

There was a clear need for a major venue to host indoor sporting and musical events because Leeds was the biggest UK city without one by 2010. The Queen's Hall had been demolished in 1989 and since then no other proposed venue had passed the planning stage. The Yorkshire Evening Post started a campaign to build an arena for Leeds and this set the ball rolling. Today, as you can see for yourself when you visit from your Leeds hotel, the arena is everything the people of Leeds envisioned.
