West Yorkshire

West Yorkshire is a large county with a large population: the city of Leeds is the third most populous city in England, and as such, the city provides a great variety of shopping, eating, and leisure facilities. Alternatively, the county also offers small towns with history: cobbled streets, tearooms, and steam trains, and a countryside with opportunities for rock climbing or hiking. Or get out in the moors for a peaceful, relaxing time.

National Coal Mining Museum, Bronte Parsonage Museum, Roundhay Park, Keighley and Worth Valley Railway, Thackray Museum, Yorkshire Sculpture Park, Kirklees Light Railway, Saltaire.
