Whether you’re looking for excitement or simple relaxation, West Yorkshire has plenty of activities to suit all needs.
Leeds and Bradford are West Yorkshire’s two adjoining cities, both founded in the midst of the industrial revolution. These cities are now prime tourist destinations with museums, galleries and, of course, popular restaurants and bars all contributing to their appeal.
Beyond West Yorkshire’s two main cities is a landscape of wide open moorland countryside with small towns and cotton mill villages dotted throughout. The remnants of the wool industry is still visible throughout with rows of weavers’ cottages in the valleys across this Yorkshire countryside, brilliantly described by the famous Bronte sisters.

If its spa boutique hotels you seek then look to West Yorkshires city hotel’s, or head to the countryside for your more down to earth family run guest houses.
