Yorkshire's rugged and beautiful landscape is perfectly suited to a great variety of outdoor and sporting activities. The deep river valleys that cut through the interior of the county are a magnet for white-water rafters, and hikers and climbers are attracted to the lower slopes of the west Pennines. There are walking trails right across the region, and the stately homes, ancient cities and traditional market towns that dot the landscape make any visit a delight. Stay at a West Yorkshire hotel and enjoy a whole range of outdoor pursuits like cricket and golf. If you're based in the Leeds area and enjoy listening to the pleasing clunk of leather on willow, be sure to visit Headingley Stadium, home of Yorkshire County Cricket Club.
West Yorkshire Hotels for Headingley Stadium
Headingley is a suburb of Leeds, and the stadium here is a major showcase for local talent as well as home to the County Cricket Club. As well as cricket you can enjoy watching rugby matches here, as it is also home to the Leeds Rhinos (rugby league) and the Yorkshire Carnegie (rugby union) teams. With so many sporting tastes catered for, Headingley Stadium makes a great destination for an exciting day out from whichever West Yorkshire hotel in the neighbourhood of Leeds you happen to be based at.
Enjoy a Match at Headingley Stadium with West Yorkshire Hotels
The stadium actually consists of two distinct and separate grounds, with a common stand housing facilities for both. The Headingley Carnegie Rugby Stadium and Headingley Carnegie Cricket Stadium make attending a match convenient for enthusiasts of both sports, rather than them having to travel farther afield to attend matches. The stadium changed its name in 2006 to acknowledge sponsorship from the local Leeds Metropolitan University, which has a sports facility called the Carnegie School of Exercise and Physical Education. If you're based nearby at a West Yorkshire hotel or guesthouse, pop along here to attend a match or to take a tour. There are plenty of refreshments facilities both in the stadium and close by, and Leeds city centre is within easy reach too.
