We are coming up to Leeds for the first time in two years for the Jubilee Bank Holiday, paid just £67 (gone up by £37 overall today) for 3 nights in the brand new Premier Inn City Centre North.
First question, are there any new restaurants, pub or bars that have opened since early 2010 which we should be looking out for? All types of cuisine, any kind of pub/bar not just real ale.
Secondly, I know the Premier Inn opened this week and the Arena is still being built but how is the general area around this hotel at present? I am expecting some construction disruption but it would still be nice to have an idea before we arrive. Also, would you grab a taxi to the hotel from the train station? I think I know where it is and as Leeds is quite compact I'm sure we could walk it, but with bags it might be a bit tricky.
Lastly, looking at going to both Harrogate & York (been to York many times) during the 3 days as well as exploring Leeds again. Is there a rover train ticket we could get so potentially we could have a day in Harrogate and an evening in York or would we just have to pay for a return to each separately?
Thanks for your help!
