A great base from which to explore Leeds and Bradford
Yeadon lies eight miles to the north west of Leeds and six miles to the north east of Bradford, making it a great base from which to explore everything that these two bustling cities have to offer.
Things to do in and around Yeadon
Yeadon itself has a long and interesting history, with lots to enjoy right on its doorstep. Visit the beautiful Victorian Town Hall - worth a look just to appreciate the stunning architecture, it also hosts a range of shows, concerts and events throughout the year. Yeadon Tarn Park is a wonderful place to spend a day; kids will love the playground and BMX track, teens and grown ups alike can try their hand at one of the water sports on offer at the Leeds Sailing and Activity Centre based on the tarn, while older visitors can simply relax, spending a summer Sunday afternoon listening to some of the region's leading brass bands. And no trip to Yeadon would be complete without a fish and chip supper from The Oldest Fish and Chip Shop in the World.
Days out with the kids
Perfect for toddlers and young kids, The Barn offers an indoor beach play area, toy town and outdoor play area, as well as a variety of dance, craft, music and singing sessions throughout the week. Just down the road in Horsforth is None Go Bye Farm, a family run farm and farm shop with a wide range of animals that's free to visit. Also free to visit is Kirkstall Abbey, one of the most complete examples of a medieval Cistercian abbey in Britain. Set in wonderful parkland along the banks of the River Aire, the visitor centre runs a full programme of family activities throughout the year.
