Leeds has a vast amount of stunning architecture and landmarks.

Harewood House is a very large building in Harewood, Leeds. It has a Bird Garden which is worth visiting to see the 90 different species, 30 of which are believed to be endangered. For those of you who are Emmerdale fans, Harewood House has a realistic timber village which is used for outdoor scenes in the soap.

The famous Reclining Woman is a bronze sculpture which can be seen outside the City Art Gallery. Famed for its Picasso-esque jaggedness and surrealism as well as its curves, this sculpture is certainly worth going out of your way for.

The Town Hall has to be one of the most stunning buildings in the city. It dominates the town centre, in between the Central Library and the Britannia Chambers. The hall has many impressive elements. Built in the 1850s, this hall is an example of classical Victorian architecture with its period features such as ornate ceilings and a domed clock tower.

Also worth visiting are Kirkstall Abbey and the North York Moors. For more of what to do around Leeds, look here.
