This holiday season, Pickard Properties has created a handy guide packed full of events, bars, restaurants and shopping venues to explore around Leeds throughout December. The Magical Christmas Guide to Leeds has been written to help those who are new to the area, such as students and those who have relocated for work, as well as locals who are looking for something different to do over the festive period in 2017.
Most Leeds natives know of the ‘German market’: the Christkindelmarkt, which is a gorgeously festive village full of inviting-looking stalls in Millennium Square. However, there is so much more than just the market going on around the Leeds area this December, and we wanted to showcase the very best the city has to offer.
With no national chains getting a mention, our Magical Christmas Guide to Leeds lets you take full advantage of homegrown, local talent in the form of restaurants, bars, shops, and events. We have looked further than the city centre too, with locations such as Headingley and Chapel Allerton revealing their hidden festive gems.
We’ve listed opening times for Leeds’s shopping centres too, saving you the hassle of trying to find out online before you head out to face the crowds. So, you can splurge on the family’s Christmas gifts, shop ‘til you drop, or take advantage of some deals for yourself.
If you fancy some seasonal entertainment this December, why not head to the local cinema to catch a movie, a city centre theatre to see a play, or explore a secret festive market? Or you could gather with loved ones and sing your heart out at one of the many churches throughout Leeds hosting carol services – there are plenty to choose from.
With so much to offer, Leeds really is the place to be this Christmas. Download the Magical Christmas Guide to Leeds now! Just click on the image below.
