A 15-minute drive away, in the city centre, the Royal Armouries Museum houses impressive displays of historic weapons and armour. You can learn about Japanese samurais in the Oriental Gallery and watch knights jousting in the Tiltyard. Fans of "The Lord of the Rings" can see swords that were used in the films, while kids can dress up as princesses or knights and make their own crowns.
You can entertain clients or just play a leisurely 18 holes at Oulton Hall Golf Club, 10 minutes' walk from the hotel. Beginners can practise their swing at the Golf Academy's covered driving range, or take a lesson with a PGA professional. Afterwards, you can jump into a buggy and head to the convivial Claret Jug restaurant to enjoy a three-course set menu.
Don't Go Home Without
Five hundred-year-old Temple Newsam House sits in manicured gardens and woodland five miles from the hotel. Book a tour to discover secret passageways, climb on to the roof or admire decorative arts such as paintings, furniture, ceramics and silver. Kids might prefer to take a picnic and explore the woodland in the huge grounds, or visit the large rare-breeds farm, home to around 400 animals.
Housed in a former Victorian workhouse 20 minutes' drive from the hotel, the Thackray Medical Museum remembers World War I with a fascinating exhibition on medical practice and field surgery. Learn how medical technology has progressed since the early 20th century, or explore a re-created Victorian street. Children can enjoy workshops during weekends and school holidays.
