Assemble your friends to take on the most exciting escape room in Leeds! With six different games to choose from, Escape Hunt will challenge you and your friends as you race against the clock to solve a series of clues in an attempt to break free from your locked room. It’s completely immersive, utterly addictive and totally entertaining.

Indulge your sweet tooth

Leeds’ newest luxury dessert parlour, Haute Dolci features chocolate quite literally ‘on tap’. The gourmet dessert restaurant has fast become an Instagram hotspot thanks to its stunning décor and premium desserts, including everything from Belgian waffles, American pancakes and French crêpes to milkshakes and sundaes. There’s even a variety of gluten-free and even vegan treats for those completing the Veganuary challenge.


Crazy golf just got epic! Junkyard Golf has three wonderfully weird courses. Groups can putt their way through all sorts of bizarre holes, think UV disco, scrapyard slides, circus freaks and jungle bathtubs. And don’t forget to hit the main bunker bar afterwards for some delicious fairground style hotdogs, salted caramel popcorn and more!

Enjoy afternoon tea with a floral twist

Our most new eatery Fleur Café recently opened its wisteria-clad doors, serving a range of desserts, pastries and high-quality teas and coffees as well as its delicious afternoon tea. Featuring canapés, petit fours, macarons and scones, you can sit back, relax and take in the beautiful floral surrounding and cascading flowers.


Perfect if you’re feeling the pinch post-festive period (aren’t we all?!), Vue cinema is one of the limited cinemas across the UK to offer tickets to its 2D films for just £4.99 as part of its Every Film Every Day offer! The perfect excuse to watch the conclusion to the Star Wars saga, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, or even the new star-studded crime thriller The Gentlemen. And by saving money on your tickets, you’ll have more to spend on popcorn.
