What Are The Main Things I Should See While In Leeds For The Weekend?
The Harewood house is something that should take your breath away, a giant stately home with some stunning gardens. The Royal Armouries museum is also a popular day time attraction with the occasional live performance taking place, illustrating battles of the past. If you have some more time available, it is worth heading over to the Kirkstall Abbey, located not too far from the city centre. A relaxing day in Roundhay park is always a great option, depending on the weather, while a stroll through the Meanwood Valley is always quite mystical when it’s a little snowy.
Are There Festive Activities In Leeds?
Yes, probably the most popular is the Leeds German Christmas Market, or Christkindelmarkt, allowing you to tuck into plenty of Bratwursts, as well as a glass of Glühwein, the German mulled wine that will certainly give you a buzz. There are plenty of rides and stalls to check out getting you into the festive spirit. You could also have a ride on the Big Wheel, which is lit up during the Winter months in the evening, making it quite a spectacle. If you have a little one then you might want to visit Santa’s grotto at the Merrion Centre.
How Early Should I Book My Leeds Christmas Party?
The earlier the better is always the best principle, considering many of the best venues will become fully booked first. We stock a large number of venues, therefore you will always be assured of some great options, but later you leave it, less likely you will be able to get the one of your dreams if you have a particular theme or venue in mind.
How Do I Pick The Right Theme For My Leeds Christmas Party?
This all depends on what you’re looking for and what budget you have available. While many venues might be able to offer a festive 3 course meal or some form of entertainment, not all will be able to offer acrobatic & LED performers, therefore you have to look at your budget per person and work out what is the most spectacular and exciting option with your price range. If you’re willing to increase your price per person slightly, you will be amazed by some of the options available. Of course, you might also want to consider whether you want unlimited drinks included or not. In regards to the theme, it could be worth listing all the options we have and running it by some key members within your team to see what appeals to them the most.
What Is The Dress Code For Office Parties In Leeds?
This will vary venue by venue. In general, you are expected to dress smart, considering the occasion, however it is worth getting in contact before the date to double check what dress code they have in place. We do our best to list on each venue page what dress code they have stated to us, while the general principle is normally no jeans and no trainers. Smart dress for men normally means a shirt, but they don’t often require a tie or a full suit, this can be down to personal preference.
