Stopover: Leeds, West YorkshireCulture, shopping, eats… and a boutique nest for the night
Check into the slinky Dakota Deluxe a few minutes’ walk from Leeds train station, but before you hit up your free mini-bar, head out and make the most of this vibrant city. If it’s art you’re after, start at the contemporary Henry Moore Institute, then cross its bridge into Leeds Art Gallery – reopened in late 2017 after a massive refurb. Shopping is also a must in Leeds, whether in glass-roofed historic arcades crammed with high-end boutiques or in retro treasure troves such as Blue Rinse. Refuel on pan-Asian or South American fare at Chino Latino.
