Leeds is perfect for the gent looking for a frosty one - from award-winning beer bars to historic taverns there's a thirst-quenching array of pubs waiting for you. Nicknamed the Knightsbridge of the North, Leeds is the third largest city in the UK and is fast growing - meaning more great restaurants, bars and clubs are popping up all the time. With a good proportion of the population being students the city's concentrated a lot on nightlife and now offers a huge range, from cheap and cheerful to luxury bars. Rock, blues and soul bar Mojo has been Leeds' best bar for five years running.
If you're foodies then you'll also be happy to know that there is a wide selection of appetite pleasing restaurants around Leeds, and great variety of cuisines. Everything from Indian and Chinese to Italian and traditional fish and chips are available to tuck into. In fact, back in 1952 a Harry Ramsden fish and chip shop in Leeds celebrated its 21st birthday by serving 10,000 people in one day - a world record. In other record breaking news, Leeds is also the top UFO sighting city in Britain, with more sightings than anywhere else since 1961.
Leeds is also really big on the music scene - it's packed with bars, clubs and live music venues. According to Leeds Music Scene there are over 1,500 local bands currently active in and around the city, ideal for catching a live band while on your Leeds stag weekend.
What's going on ...
You can be sure that you and the boys will never share a dull moment in lively Leeds. As well as all the retail, dining, cultural and entertainment options which the city has to offer, you can pick from a huge range of our outdoor and indoor activities too. 5 a side, paintball and quad biking are classic stag choices, whereas our terrifyingly awesome daredevil tournament or crazy blindfold driving activities offer something totally different!
Leeds is a big city which gets very busy at night, so if you're not familiar with its streets, a pre-booked pub crawl can be a good plan to kick off your evening and get your bearings. We can even sort out guestlist nightclubbing for you and your mates!
Where to hang out ...
Head to decadent luxury bars such as Oracle and others overlooking the river, for that laid-back city vibe or experience some of the city's famous live music whilst you enjoy a pint at award-winning Mojo (Leeds' best bar for 5 years running) or The Wardrobe.
Later, Call Lane is a great bet for a classic party atmosphere, cracking drinks deals and the biggest, most popular clubs. Before the sun goes down though, don't miss out on our fantastic activities on the surrounding Yorkshire Dales and be sure to explore the easily navigated city centre. Millennium Square always has something going on and the Civic Quarter or Exchange Quarter are the places to be for dining and incredible shopping.
When to visit
Leeds is one of the driest places in the UK and temperatures tend to be quite mild, meaning that a trip to the city in spring or autumn could still turn out to be warm. In August there's the Leeds Food and Drink Festival, Comedy in the Park, Carling Weekend Music Festival and I Love South Leeds Festival. In October the Carnival Messiah comes to town and November sees the Leeds International Film Festival as well as the opening ceremony of the Leeds Lights. In December the popular German Christmas market in Millennium Square arrives as well as The Ice Cube, Europe's biggest temporary ice rink, being set up in Leeds. If you and the boys are feeling fit then in May you can take part in the Leeds Half Marathon. In June Leeds is home to Leeds Bollywood in the Park and July then sees Kirkstall Festival and Party in the Park.
