A Wander in the Wonderland of Roundhay Park
Want a stroll in one of Europe’s largest urban parks? Roundhay Park could be just the place. A verdant oasis, it serves as Leeds’ version of Narnia with lakes that mirror the sky, exotic plants that would baffle any botanist and tropical landscapes with butterflies, birds, meerkats and even some night owls that like company after dark – all this in just one park? Well Leeds doesn’t do things by halves so put on your walking shoes and pack a picnic before exploring its urban wilderness; remember getting lost is part of the journey; as told by squirrels themselves.
Retail Therapy at Victoria Quarter
