Some of England's most exciting cities sit a short journey away from some its most spectacular countryside. What's not to like?
Flights to Leeds arrive at Leeds Bradford Airport, which is a great base to explore the north of England. Well known for its cosmopolitan mix of shopping and nightlife, Leeds has been recognised as one of the country's top places to visit and dine out in.
Leeds is also a popular city break for culture lovers, as it remains the only city outside London with its own ballet companies, repertory theatre and opera house. It's also home to one of the UK's best collection of contemporary British art, housed in Leeds Art Gallery.
For those looking to get away from the fast pace of city life, Leeds is the perfect gateway to the Yorkshire region, which provides some of England's most breathtaking scenery. The Yorkshire Dales National Park is a mere 20 miles north of Leeds and a haven for those craving peace, relaxation and an abundance of wildlife.
Or why not be inspired by the ancient city of York, where old meets new in a heady mix of stunning architecture, chic stylish restaurants and world-class attractions such as the York Dungeons and Museum.
The Yorkshire capital of Leeds and neighbouring city of Bradford are well served with a large range of destinations offered from their local airport...
Budget carrier Ryanair has set up base in recent years, and the locally based Jet2 airline has an extensive operation from the airport to European hotspots as well as seasonal flights to New York.
Along with the holiday companies of Thomas Cook and Thomson, Ryanair and Jet2 service holiday favourites such as the Balearics, the Spanish Costas and the Canary islands year-round.
Additionally, there are regular flights to Italian cities including Rome and Venice, plus Prague, German and Dutch cities and the beach resorts of the Algarve, Malta, Cyprus, Tunisia and Turkey.
For long haul connections, the frequent services with KLM to Amsterdam provide connections worldwide as do the daily flights to London Heathrow with British Airways. Pakistan International runs the only long haul service direct from the airport, flying to Islamabad.
Finally an excellent domestic network with flybe, Eastern and Jet2 links the airport with Aberdeen, Belfast, Glasgow and Southampton.
Direct Leeds Bradford flights can be found from six UK airports and almost 70 international destinations...
After your flight, Leeds Bradford has several options for onward transport. The airport has a taxi rank outside the terminal doors with a typical fare into Leeds or Bradford costing about £20. It takes 25 minutes to get to the centre of Leeds, and around 20 minutes for Bradford.
Both cities are major rail hubs on the British network. You can jump aboard a shuttle bus between the stations and the airport.
You'll also find hourly bus services from the airport running to Leeds, Bradford and many other local destinations.
Being close to the major motorway networks of the M1 and M62, car hire also makes for a sensible option and gives visitors the freedom to travel around Leeds and Bradford and Yorkshire sights and attractions that lie further afield.
Some well-known names and a wealth of exciting independent hotels go toe-to-toe in these vibrant cities. There's quite a choice...
Bradford's fondness for history and tradition means it's home to some fine hotels. And although opulence is often associated with its wealthy cousin up the road in Harrogate, you'll find that Bradford city centre has a selection of luxury hotels that wouldn't appear out of place in London's swankier boroughs.
However, there's also no shortage of budget hotels, with plenty of chains offering cheap room rates alongside many small B&Bs.
Leeds has the contemporary edge on its neighbour and is fast becoming the home of the extravagant boutique hotel in the north. You'll find a good selection of well-known hotels that cater for all budgets, but the city centre - particularly around the now regenerated old wharfs and canal ways - is the place to find elegant accommodation with a designer touch.
If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city centres, the quiet edges of the Yorkshire countryside are little more than a short ride away. You'll find many peaceful retreats as you head towards the likes of Harrogate, Ilkley or Otley - all about half an hour's drive to the north.
