GO Kids & Families in Leeds

Family Days Out in Leeds Leeds has a great range of family activities for all ages.
If you’re looking for accommodation you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the vast number of hotels and guest houses now offering double, triple and family rooms. If in doubt stick to familiar brands that pride themselves on accommodating families such as The Sleep Inn [map] on Vicar Lane and Novotel [map] on Whitehall Quay, which offers some fantastic family deals for people travelling with children. Novotel is also centrally located just a few minutes from the city centre and the perfect location from which to begin your visit.
If you’re looking for something a little bit different, whilst staying within a budget, try a country cottage in the heart of The Dales. Places such as The Three Faces Cottage offer classic Yorkshire accommodation to families.
Family leisure is in abundance here with more than 20 council-run leisure centres offering a range of activities from sun beds and badminton courts to saunas and swimming pools.
Leeds has an Olympic sized swimming pool [map] that’s definitely worth a visit. The pool is based at Lisbon Street and has excellent swimming and leisure facilities. There’s also a learner pool for those not adventurous enough to brave a few lengths in the main pool.
If your children are older and have a sense of adventure take them to The Works Skatepark based at Hunslet in the centre of Leeds.
The Works Skatepark is split into beginners’ space and an area for the more advanced, so there’s no excuse for parents to sit on the sidelines! If the idea of sliding around on in-lines fills you with dread why not stay grounded with a visit to the café or lounge? There’s also a shop from which to purchase your essential skate paraphernalia.
If you have a head for heights a visit to a climbing centre should be at the top of your list. The Leeds Wall [map] is great fun for all the family, offering a range of climbing courses whatever your ability. The Wall is located at Gelderd, Leeds.
