If you are a cinema goer in the Leeds area then there is nowhere better to go and relax infront of the latest releases than Showcase Cinemas just off junction 27 of the M62 (the junction that joints to the M621 which heads into Leeds city centre). I have been to many cinemas in my time (ABC, Warner, Virgin, Odeon, Cineworld) but none come close to a showcase cinema especially not the Leeds one now that it has all stadium seating and the latest screens and dolby surround. There are two new cinema complexs in striking distance of me, I have tried them both (cineworld in the centre of Bradford and the new Odeon on the way to Pudsey) but my number one is still ...

The Royal Armouries are Britain’s oldest national museum, and are currently spread across three sites – the museum in Leeds, the White Tower in the Tower of London, and Fort Nelson, Portsmouth. This op concerns the largest of the sites in Leeds, which I visited last week. This location houses the bulk of the collection, minus the artillery pieces (which are in Hampshire) and those items directly relating to the history of the Tower of London.

The collections originate from the royal ... Read the complete review

The Leeds Art Gallery and Henry Moore Institute are well worth a visit on a rainy afternoon. Entry is free and it takes at least an hour to walk around. The art gallery was opened in 1888, and houses a large collection, from Victorian, Impressionism, to Modernism. The Yorkshire Bank sponsored room is home to some impressive modern art, other highlights are paintings by John Everett Millais. The Henry Moore institute was opened in 1993, but recently redeveloped to provide greater storage. The Institute now houses a range of 2D and 3D sculptures from a wide range of artists, these included many from the eponymous Henry Moore, statues made out of miniture bricks, ...
