OK Comics

OK Comics is definitely more than okay – it’s the leading place for comic books and graphic novels in Leeds. It’s won business awards, which speaks for itself, and has a very large stock; not only the popular titles, but great depth of material. There’s also a lending library for graphic novels, while the upper floor is where sale stock can be found, with comic books as low as 50 pence. New comics arrive weekly to please both the browser and the serious collector, with a comfortable place to sit and read.

West Yorkshire Playhouse

You will love the internationally-acclaimed West Yorkshire Playhouse. Its reputation as one of the best theaters outside London is well deserved: productions range from innovative, contemporary plays to toe-tapping musicals. In the past, the theater has attracted a veritable who's who of modern British theater, including Prunella Scales, Timothy West, Steven Berkoff and Patrick Stewart. The West Yorkshire Playhouse complex consists of The Quarry Theater, The Courtyard Theater and a lovely restaurant and bar.

Thackray Museum of Medicine

Located next to St James' Hospital, this award-winning museum offers an insight into the development of medicine and public health over the past many years. Sounds boring? Far from it, the Thackray is one of the city's major attractions and it's easy to see why. Dramatic and often stomach-churning reconstructions and interactive displays guarantee a fun and educational day out for all the family. The re-enactment of an eleven year-old factory girl's leg amputation is particularly gruesome. Not a place for those of a nervous disposition! Open bank holidays.

Beckett Street, Leeds, United Kingdom, LS9 7LN
Middleton Railway

While it may not quite be a train-spotting heaven, Middleton Railway is home to an impressive range of steam and diesel locomotives, some of which date from the 19th Century. The world's first commercial railway, the Middleton line was built to service the city's developing coal industry. It has since been restored by local enthusiasts to offer a regular service between Moor Road and Middleton Park. The regular Thomas the Tank Engine and Postman Pat events are a big hit with children whilst older passengers enjoy the trip down memory lane. Dates and times of services vary.

Tropical World

A hot and steamy enclave of tropical plants and exotic wildlife, Tropical World has proved to be a hit with locals and visitors of all ages. Plant-lovers are bound to be impressed by the huge collection of tropical flora, the largest outside Kew Gardens whilst animal-lovers will be transfixed by the beautiful butterflies and wide-eyed bush babies. To cool off pay a visit to the nearby tearoom which offers a selection of tasty refreshments.

Prince's Avenue, Roundhay Park, Leeds, United Kingdom, LS8 2ER

As soon as you step into Lotherton, you will be reminded of the elegance of a bygone age. Teeming with paintings, 19th-century furniture and silverware, the house is particularly famous for its collection of historical costumes. Communities of red and fallow deer live on the lovely grounds, which incorporate an Edwardian walled garden and bird sanctuary. There is a small cafe as well, where you can get refreshments.

Lotherton Lane, Aberford, Leeds, United Kingdom, LS25 3EB
Bolton Abbey

Bolton Abbey is the Yorkshire estate of the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire. This fascinating spot blends natural beauty with rich history. Test some of the 75 miles of footpaths, which circle the estate on both low and high ground, or walk through the Strid Wood. The fearsome Strid, a wound carved in the rock face by furious white water is a wonderful sight but tread with care on the slippery rocks. Alternatively, visit the centuries-old Priory, the Barden Tower and the fabled Money Tree to witness some of the wondrous offerings of the estate.
