Travelling around Leeds

Leeds is such a diverse and interesting city with many attractions that are a must to visit.
 
Must See:
The Royal Armouries Museum, beside the hotel, houses a vast collection of shining suits of armour and fearsome medieval weapons. Watch knights jousting in open-air summer tournaments and trained birds swooping for their prey in regular falconry events.
 
Must Do:
Take your pick from Leeds' atmospheric cafes and bars. You can sip tea amid marble pillars in the elegant Victorian Tiled Hall at Leeds Art Gallery, and enjoy an evening sipping cocktails and sampling speciality beers in the hip bars on lively Call Lane.
 
What's New:
Crocodiles are the latest addition to the wildlife at Tropical World in Roundhay Park, 4 miles from Holiday Inn Express Leeds City Centre-Armouries. Over 40 types of butterfly and Amazonian birds flit among exotic blooms in this humid rainforest park.
 
Don't Go Home Without:
An afternoon of shopping. Leeds' mostly pedestrianised centre makes strolling between boutiques easy. Browse the latest fashions in high-street stores on The Headrow shopping street and enjoy gourmet dining at the Corn Exchange.
 
Tips:
Ask staff at Holiday Inn Express Leeds City Centre-Armouries about discounted meals in the sophisticated restaurant at nearby Alea Casino. You can get the ball rolling with a complimentary £5 bet and stay refreshed with a complimentary soft drink.
