The free Royal Armouries Museum, right next to the hotel, houses a huge collection of historic arms and armour. Jousting and archery re-enactments take you back to medieval times, and kids can dress up to enjoy interactive displays, imagine life as a warrior or play detective at recreated crime scenes. The Hall of Steel shows weapons and helmets in an impressive multi-storey skylit display.
Da non perdere
Set in parkland at 18th-century Bretton Hall, the Yorkshire Sculpture Park shows work by major British and international artists, both in the open air and indoors. It's just off the M1 only 17 miles from the hotel. Take a pair of decent boots and a picnic to explore the estate and seek out works by modernists Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth, as well as environmental artist Andy Goldsworthy.
Non tornare a casa senza
One of the most historic performance venues in the region, the Leeds Grand Theatre and Opera House is only two miles from the hotel. Its twin spires tower overhead and the soaring auditorium has ornate Gothic adornments and glistening crystal chandeliers. Sit back and relax in the mezzanine’s velveteen seats or opt for a box to enjoy an evening’s entertainment from the best seat in the house.
You can catch international bands and big-name comedians at the First Direct Arena, 10 minutes' drive from the hotel. The huge venue hosts concerts by artists such as Elton John and Bruce Springsteen.
