Often described as a Gamma World City, Leeds has come a long way since it was a market town in the Middle Ages. Now considered the commercial heart of the West Yorkshire Urban area, it is also one of the best cities to visit for shopping and for the night life. This of course makes it an ideal destination for your stag weekend. With over 120 bars and just under 30 clubs you’ll have no trouble finding an establishment to suit yourself and the rest of your stag group. There is plenty to keep you entertained during the day too, from paintballing to tank driving, and clay pigeon shooting to the G.I. Joe Experience!
Twinned with Dortmund, Lille and Durban to name but a few, Leeds has a long list of twinned towns and cities. The city itself has also received a number of awards over the years, including The UK’s Best Shopping City and the UK’s Most Female Friendly City, so it’s definitely one to take your lady to. She’ll love Harvey Nicks and you’ll love all the bars.
Leeds is also home to scores of successful bands, including Soft Cell, Kaiser Chiefs and Alt-J.
Leeds’ night life is often described as the best in the country, even winning a Mixmag award a few years back. It’s great for everyone, no matter what your intentions for the night are. Starting things off in Clarence Dock is a good idea, as you can grab some food and have a couple of drinks before hitting the main areas. Other notable areas to visit are Call Lane and New Market,and also Greek Street for some slightly more upmarket establishments.
Leeds is great for shopping too, and with the amount of pubs and bars in the city it is easy to combine a bit of shopping with some lunch and a couple of pints.

Getting around Leeds is best done by taxi during the evenings, as this allows you more time and flexibility in where you want to go and when. During the day the FreeCityBus runs on a circular route through the city, which as the name suggests is free! Leeds main train station is well served from the North and South so travelling to and from Leeds by train is an easy option.
