Here is one for locals and Yorkshire lovers: 1,000 Leeds hotel rooms are going for £10 apiece. It’s a wheeze organised by Visit Leeds, the city’s tourist body.
Some of the rooms are going for £10 for one night; others are going for £10 for an extra night; others are going for £10 for a third night. The accommodation on offer includes celeb haunt 42 The Calls, and the serviced apartments at Roomzzz Central.
If you aren’t familiar with the city: do check the location of your chosen hotel, as some of the places taking part are quite a way out of the city centre. If you’re coming by car, please note that you will get totally and utterly lost somewhere inside Leeds’ notorious one-way system.
Reasons to visit Leeds, apart from shops and that: on the doorstep of Bronte country, within sniffing distance of the Yorkshire Dales, um… museums and galleries. Nightlife. Victoriana (as above). A really good T.K. Maxx, where yours truly purchased a silk Ronit Zilkha frock for £25 at the weekend. Although I appreciate that T.K. Maxx isn’t a bona fide visitor attraction. Oh yes: and lots of free stuff!
Order a brochure and you will also be entered into a competition to win a weekend at the Thorpe Park Hotel & Spa.
