Living it up in Leeds on your Stag Weekend

11 May 2009

We've always know that Leeds is a city well famed for its nightlife and party atmosphere. We send plenty of happy stags there who almost can't keep up with the pace of fun in this West Yorkshire city. It's about high time we give it a little mention on these blog pages and if we're repeating ourselves, it's only there is so much on offer on a stag weekend in Leeds that it deserves it s praises to be sung.

How to get there

There's no wonder with its location that Leeds is a busy city for transport. Leeds City Station provides regular routes in and out of the city connecting the rest of the country with direct lines to London, and plenty of connections to the rest of the country. If you have guys in your group who are scattered around the north of the country, Leeds is a great gathering point. It's easy to get to by car with the M1 and M62 crossing over just south of the city.

Famous people from Leeds

Most of the cast of Emmerdale and a few from Coronation Street. And Marco Pierre White – but don't let that put you off. That's just the famous people. The actual locals are far better to spend your time with. They're friendly, funny, down to earth and love a drink or three at the weekend.

What to do in the day

Leeds has a great reputation for shopping whether you're after high street names, designer names or independent stores. If that's all guff to you, then you could organise your weekend away to take in a football match, or let our guys in the office set you up with an activity at one of our first class activity venues. From paintballing, to golf, quads to karting, we can set you up with a whole day of high speed adrenaline to get you raring to go before hitting the town at night.

What to do at night

If you're hitting the pop straight from the train station, you won't have far to travel and there are plenty of the usual suspects around this area (Wetherspoons etc). Venturing a little further, if you head up Park Row, you'll come across Greek Street and there are some nifty little boozers here such as OK Karaoke, All Bar One and The Living Room. This is quite a trendy upmarket area so expect more cocktails and wine than quiet pints in a traditional pub. Around the corn exchange area you'll find some more places to sup in. Expect more independent and quirky bars but no less trendy or popular. The Headrow is the main road running east to west across the city and you'll find pubs dotted around here. For later on in the night there are a number of clubs also near the corn exchange so this is a good area to head to if you wanted to cut down on your walking distance from pub to pub
