The city of Leeds transforms itself into a Winter Wonderland each December and is an excellent place to get into the true festive spirit. Located in the middle of all the festive fun is our Leeds hotel is a great hotel choice this December.
A must for locals and visitors is the traditional Christkindelmarkt German Christmas Market. Cinnamon and spice and festive tunes fill the air as Millennium Square is taken over by wooden chalet stalls selling handcrafted gifts and speciality German foods and delicacies. Enjoy a hot mug of gluhwein or hot chocolate laced with rum, whilst huddled around the barrels in a traditional Bavarian beer cellar. Bratwurst sausage, goulash, and schnitzels are all available to tempt the taste buds nor far from our City Centre Leeds hotel. The market runs daily, from 10th November until 24th December.
A visit to Harewood House in North Leeds is a must this December. The location for ITV’s drama, Victoria this Winter, the house opens its doors to the public for a Victorian Christmas like no other. Discover more about the Christmas traditions from the Victorian era; from storytelling, carol singing and present giving. The state floor will be beautifully dressed in Victorian decorations and guests can explore the hustle and bustle of the kitchens for a glimpse of how a Victorian Christmas came alive.
A visit to our City Centre Leeds hotel at Christmas would not be complete without a trip to the numerous arcades and shopping centres around the city. Twinkling lights and stunning decorations on Briggate, plus the beautiful window displays at Harvey Nicholls, all make for a magical festive shopping experience. Hepworth Deli and Olive and Rye Christmas hamper and pantry store in Queens Arcade returns throughout November and December, offering edible seasonal delights from chutney to gingerbread house kits. The grand Corn Exchange is host to various craft and food markets throughout December, offering a range of stocking fillers. Celebrating its 1st birthday this winter, the Victoria Gate complex, with a John Lewis flagship store, upmarket boutiques, and fashionable casino is a firm destination on Leeds' ever-growing shopping map.
So this December 'have yourself a very Merry Christmas' in Leeds.....
The beautiful building and setting in central Leeds make for a peaceful and exclusive stay. The New Ellington is a wonderfully modern hotel, with loads of quirky little details scattered around to give the hotel character.
