Things To Do in Yorkshire
Experience the best of Yorkshire
If you’re the adventurous sort, you’ve got the entire county of West Yorkshire to explore, not just Leeds. Here’s just a handful of interesting things to do in West Yorkshire…
Yorkshire Sculpture Park (25 minute drive)
Explore the installations.
One of the best places to visit in Yorkshire, there’s around 100 sculptures to explore spread across 500 acres of 18th century landscape – you could easily spend the day at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park. With installations from the likes of Damien Hirst and Simon Palmer, there’s plenty for you to see.
National Science and Media Museum (40 minute drive)
Immerse yourself in the science of media.
With exhibits like the world’s oldest surviving photo negative, technology used to investigate the paranormal and the Apollo 11 broadcast, there’s endless things for you to discover at the National Science and Media Museum.
Standedge Tunnel (50 minute drive)
Take a canal trip.
Standedge Tunnel is the longest, deepest and highest canal tunnel in the entirety of Britain. Measuring at just over 5000m long, the tunnel truly is a feat of engineering. Take a boat trip through the tunnel or enjoy a stroll along the canal before stopping for coffee and cake at the nearby coffee house.
Emmerdale Village Tour (35 minute drive)
Take a walk around Yorkshire’s favourite village.
While there won’t be any filming, you can explore the real Emmerdale set on the actors’ day off. It’s an outside walking tour, so unfortunately there’ll be no nipping into The Woolpack for a quick pint, but there’s opportunities to take plenty of pictures.
