A warm Yorkshire welcome in Horsforth
There's a lot more to Horsforth than merely being a suburb of Leeds. It's far more quaint than you might imagine thanks to its stone buildings; it was also once thought to be the biggest village in England. Visitors hoping to explore more of its past should take a tour of the Horsforth Village Museum, which offers an insight into how life has changed in the area throughout the centuries.
Take a well-earned breather in Horsforth Hall Park
Although the hall that gives the park its name was demolished in the 1950s, there is still plenty to see and do here. A specially designed outdoor integrated play area allows disabled and able-bodied children under the age of eight to play together, and was the first of its kind in the area. Older visitors can enjoy the peace and tranquility of the Japanese garden, and the park hosts numerous events during the summer months.
