Leeds, being the cultural, financial and commercial center of West Yorkshire situated in the north of England, is a modern and thriving city. Like many of the big cities in Yorkshire, Leeds has a glorious past. A great many magnificent buildings from the Victorian era bear witness to that glorious heritage. In contrast to other cities, Leeds managed to re-establish its position as a great destination for cultural, service, and entertainment significance for the 21st century. While Leeds' skyline is per se stunning, but the city has shopping miles on offer that can compete with those in London easily, gastronomic offerings that are in no way inferior to Birmingham's, and nightlife as famous as that of Manchester rankings. Leeds is so amazingly diverse. In Leeds, the inexpensive shops are only a few minutes' stroll from extravagance shopping, simple curry bars stand side by side with established English pubs, and also skyscrapers are built right next to heritage sites.

Many Occasions occur frequently on the square, for example the Christmas market, or concerts and many live shows of major sporting events on huge screens, or even a skating rink is installed sometimes.
2. Music Festivals
There is something about Leeds and Music festivals. It seams this city just can’t have enough of this kind of entertainment. It is considered that the Leeds Festival on the last Monday of August is one of the biggest in the UK and attracts very famous bands to Bramham Park. It is estimated that tens of festivals and concerts happen every year, but between June and September is when most of them transpire.
3. Emmerdale Studio Experience
The Emmerdale Studio Experience is offered on the past filming set of the famous British soap opera “Emmerdale” and is now a tourist attraction for the public. On offer are tours of the fictional village in Yorkshire and other film sets like the Woolpack pub. You will find explanations for some of the techniques that were employed for the production of the “Emmerdale”. To visit the outdoors part set on the Harewood Estate, will need another quick drive by charter bus. Coach Charter Germany’s tour bus can take care of your group for this trip.
4. Victoria Quarter
Leeds' architectural value can be seen in nothing more than its beautiful shopping arcades. There are many of these in the area, but the shopping arcade in Victoria Quarter is second to none. It's a shopping palace with big brands including Harvey Nichols, Vivienne Westwood and Louis Vuitton in a class of its own. Always worth a visit to Victoria Quarter for a quick window shopping. There are several first-class restaurants and cafés in between wrought-iron features and marble columns. Also can blend into the busy atmosphere is the Victoria Gate Casino, which is just a few minutes walk away.
5. Kirkgate Market
Kirkgate Market has been in the middle of Leeds since 1857 in a beautiful historic structure. Meanwhile, the industry is also eating up the space behind it and a massive expansion has been achieved. There are plenty of stalls to buy a snack at lunchtime. The market is easily available, as there is a bus stop right in front of the market hall and the train station is just a few minutes' walk away. There are approximately 200 stalls on the market with clothes, jewelry, hardware and hairdressing as well as fresh regional items and snacks. The deal is just as diverse as the town itself. Beside curry and kebab stalls and original British butchers you will find Chinese products here.
6. Royal Armouries Museum
There is plenty of military hardware to see at Royal Armouries Museum. Medieval swords and armor are among the oldest items in the set, but there are also modern firearms and numerous other weapons from around the globe. The museum is located on the Aire River in the center of town and the entrance is free. Maybe the museum's biggest draw is the fort, where famous fights, duels, and tournaments are re-enacted. During the year, those and other special activities take place.
7. Belgrave Music Hall and Canteen
What was once a huge nursery school in the city's Northern Quarter is now a vibrant, young, multi-storey venue that could well be the best live music venue in town. Taking advantage of the new trend for the burlesque, frenziedly named 'The Wet Spot' club night, is held here every month and offers racy shows from the best adult cabaret performers in the world.
8. Roundhay Park
Roundhay Park is one of Leeds' most famous sights, spanning over 700 acres. This greenery patch is a perfect place to go for a picnic, walk your dog, jog and just enjoy the sun. Roundhay Park is also Leeds' only park which has a clan of meerkats as residents. There are also lakes, forests, fields and the 'Tropical Biome,' home to wild and wonderful things all around.
9. Call Lane
Call Lane like Manchester's most popular Canal Street has a reputation as the best place to party. The bars and clubs are basically lined up at the LGBT friendly street. The street is car-free on weekends which makes it suitable for a bar crawl. The music variety is very diverse, so just keep touring from one pub to another before you find the right one. The famous Call Lane pubs include Jake's, Wire Club and Call Lane Social pubs. Oporto is best known for its live music, while Neon Cactus offers a fine tequila range and rich cocktails. So why not hire one of our smaller tour bus vehicles or hire a minivan with a driver from our Coach Charter Germany's bus company?
10. Thackray Medical Museum
The Beckett Street's Thackray Medical Museum is a fascinating place that tells the sometimes gray tale of medical technology development around the world. Formerly a poor house, the building was attached to the nearby hospital, so ghosts are more than likely to be around. No other Leeds buildings are said to have been so haunted. If the daytime dioramas and exhibits weren't spooky enough, you can enter a regularly featured evening ghost night. If you're lucky (if you can put it that way), the mysterious woman in the clothes of the 18th century style can make sudden appearance and wave or you may hear peculiar knocking and hammering.
