FAQs

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 Food Options Are Available At a Leeds Shared Christmas Party?

Look forward to a delicious mix of mouth-watering dishes on the menu at our shared Christmas parties and prepare to be spoiled for choice. There’s something truly sumptuous here that everyone will be able to enjoy, including meat, fish, vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options. If you can’t spot something on the menu that’s suitable for you, or if you or a member of your group have a food allergy, please speak to the venue asap. The venue will do their best to accommodate dietary requests.

Are Vegans and Vegetarians Catered For?

Yes! Our shared party menus will usually offer a delicious vegan option, so no one has to miss out! If you can’t spot a vegan dish on the menu at your preferred party night, please get in touch with the venue who will be happy to discuss your requests.

Is There Car Parking Available at Leeds Hotels and Venues?

Some hotel venues may have parking available onsite, but do bear in mind that this may be restricted, chargeable and on a first come first served basis. If you’re not drinking and wish to be designated driver on the night, then you may prefer to consider parking in one of the city’s many public car parks which are open 24 hours a day.

What Taxi Companies Are There In Leeds?

If you’re planning on using a taxi to get to and from your Christmas party venue, then we’d recommend getting one booked in advance. Taxi services can get very busy around the Christmas party season, so we would say it’s best to have one booked ahead of time to save your peace of mind.

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.

Types of Venue

Hold onto your tinsel, Leeds party animals, because this city is bursting with top-notch venues that will make your Christmas bash shine brighter than Rudolph's nose! From luxurious hotel function rooms to quirky hotspots, you'll be spoilt for choice. Let's start with the grand hotel function rooms, where you can unleash your festive fantasies. Picture chandeliers sparkling like Christmas baubles, elegant décor that would impress even Santa himself, and attentive staff ready to cater to your every Christmas wish. These venues know how to throw a party fit for Santa's A-list.

But if you're after something a little more unconventional, Leeds has got you covered! How about a Christmas soirée in a converted industrial warehouse? With exposed brick walls adorned with fairy lights and a dance floor that could rival Santa's workshop, this hip venue will make your party the talk of the tinseltown. Or why not transport your guests to a winter wonderland in a charming barn venue? With rustic beams, cosy fireplaces, and plenty of mulled wine flowing, you'll be singing carols 'til the cows come home.

And let's not forget the hidden gems tucked away in Leeds' city centre. From trendy cocktail bars to quirky event spaces, you'll find a spot that matches your party's unique personality. Think neon-lit dance floors, karaoke booths, and festive cocktails that will have you saying "ho, ho, ho!"

Get ready to jingle all the way at your Christmas party in Leeds, whether it's with your work colleagues, friends, or beloved family! The options for festive entertainment are as plentiful as Santa's sack. For some toe-tapping tunes, hire a live band that'll have everyone hitting the dance floor like Santa's little helpers. If you want to mix things up, bring in a DJ who can spin the ultimate Christmas playlist that'll keep the party rocking all night long.

And to add a touch of magic, invite a roaming magician to dazzle your guests with mind-bending tricks. For some festive fun and memories, set up a photo booth where everyone can strike their best Santa poses. And why not have a caricaturist on hand to create hilarious drawings that will make everyone laugh like Santa after too many cookies? With these entertainment ideas, your Leeds Christmas party will be the stuff of legends!

After a top Christmas party, it's time to have a safe and smooth journey back home. Public transport is your reliable ally for a hassle-free return. Leeds Station serves as the transportation hub, offering numerous train services.

For a convenient alternative, consider the well-connected bus routes. Catch the number 1 or 6 from Boar Lane and alight at Headingley or Roundhay. Alternatively, you can jump in a taxi back to your home or hotel. The choice is yours.
