Located less than half an hour from Leeds city centre you’ll find one of Yorkshire’s favourite hangout spots to eat-drink-play and everything in between.

Regardless of whether you’re looking for an activity to fill a rainy day with the kids; a first or fiftieth date or just a treat that’ll keep every single one of your mates entertained, when we say there’s plenty to do here – we really do mean it.


There are plenty of choices to fill your day, including screen treats, bowling feats and loads of places for eats. Take your chances in the escape room and see if you can beat the clock or try a round of crazy golf before ending the day with cocktails- the combinations really are endless.

Catching a movie is a must at Cineworld. Grab the obligatory popcorn and unwind with the latest blockbuster movie or experience the world’s first multi-projection immersive cinema auditorium where the 270-degree viewing experience surrounds you in your seat!

For those looking for something different, the 4DX cinema is revolutionising the experience  and brings special effects like wind, fog and scents into screen- and that’s before you’ve experienced the high-tech motion seats that truly immerse you in the movie.

If you fancy yourself as a bit of an escape artist, or just want the opportunity to test out your detective skills, The Escapologist is the perfect activity for all ages. Take on one of their four escape rooms and follow it up with one of their delicious mocktails or cocktails in the beautiful bar area – there is even Harry Potter potions for the kids.

If that’s not enough, there’s Gravity Aerial Adventures, Urban Climbing Walls and Trampoline Park; Laser Zone; Snozone; Tenpin Bowling; ImmotionVR and the FunStation games arcade.

Food and Drink offerings

There are some seriously exciting foodie options here too.

For the ultimate burger feast, look no further than Friday’s Ultimate Cheese Dipper Burger, it’s basically two beef burger patties piled high with a huge gooey offering of cheese, bacon and even some mozzarella sticks between three burger buns.
