We are lucky to live in the beautiful West Country, an area steeped in history - we're just a stone's throw from the stunning city of Bath, and Stonehenge is less than an hour away. When we go away for short breaks in the UK we tend to head south; usually to Dorset, Cornwall, or Devon, but one place I would really love to visit is up north - Yorkshire.

If we were enjoying a child-free break, I have been told that we should head into Leeds city centre where we'd be spoiled for choice with restaurants, attractions, shops, arts & culture, and nightlife - and most of the attractions are free! With museums, galleries, food & drink, shopping, and nights out where we can be entertained at a gig, cabaret, or comedy club, or even just to head out to a bar or club, I think both of our tastes would be well catered for.
Yorkshire is right at the top of my must-visit list for all of these reasons, and more. Where is top of yours?
