Christmas. That great Northern star shining brightly... the guiding light in the sky... And we're not talking about stables and wise men.
Leeds has fast become the brightest shining Northern Star, with the largest UK winter illuminations festival lighting miles of rope light, a staggering 12,000 lamps and 3000 hand crafted motifs – certainly enough to light up that festive spirit in you!
There's so much going on in Leeds at Christmas time, from the festive German markets to the hundreds of after-dark activities in the city's thriving night scene.
Don't forget too that Leeds is one of the best shopping cities in the country, so why not make the most of a Christmas shopping weekend here with an overnight stay and a festive meal?
From hotels, to restaurants to things to do, our Leeds Christmas guide takes care of it all.
