There were two reasons that made me decide on a trip to Leeds. The first one was connected to the shopping opportunities and the second to the numerous tourist attractions. I also considered visiting other towns in West Yorkshire, including Wakefield, Halifax, Bradford and Huddersfield. I came to Leeds accompanied by my girlfriend and we decided to use a taxi cab for transportation. She told me how her grandmother comes regularly to Leeds for medical treatment, using a special wheelchair access taxi. As for hotel accommodation, we had two very interesting options: Village Urban Resort (186 Otley Road) and Park Plaza (Boar Lane).
As my girlfriend is a medical resident, it should come as no surprise that she wanted to visit Thackray’s Medical Museum. It was pretty interesting, as there are a lot of medical curiosities here to discover. As this trip was for the both us, we also visited to Leeds Cathedral. There is something about old and historic buildings that makes me feel simple and pure. I love the town and created many wonderful memories here. Each night, we returned to the hotel with one of those executive cars, feeling like we were royalty and not just simple people. The taxi company also informed me that minibuses were available for large groups, which was useful information for the future.
As my girlfriend had to return to work, she took an airport taxi from Leeds to Gatwick airport. The 233 miles journey was covered in 3 hours and 53’ and she paid £407 for a saloon car. As for myself, I traveled between Leeds and Leeds-Bradford airport with an executive car. The 9 miles journey was covered in 22 minutes and I paid around £35. On the road, I enjoyed a pause at Pines Hotel (10 Marsh Road, Luton) and at Holiday Inn (Castle Bridge Road, Nottingham). I preferred to eat at Bengal Balti (616 Hitchin Road, Luton) and at Higoi (57 Lenton Boulevard, Nottingham).
