Discovering Leeds

Well, the answer is: the new Leeds! Yes, as you read, this city has changed dramatically in the last few years. Its government decided to turn everything around and start modernizing, while keeping some of the old stuff to preserve its history. Leeds is by far one of the fastest growing cities in the UK, buzzing with shopping malls, new fancy buildings, restaurants, a touristic circuit and an all around renewed feel.

Is it difficult to get to Leeds?

It is definitely not. One of the great advantages of the city is that it is child’s play to get ther form any point in the United Kingdom – and even fro other countries! Whatever mean of transport you choose, Leeds is absolutely accessible, and you won’t believe how little it will take you to arrive to this new city.

Getting to Leeds is no challenge, and we will tell you all the options that you have. First of all, you can simply drive there. Leeds is right by the M62 and the A1/M1 link, and there are also many other roads that can take you to Leeds’s ring road. No matter what point of the UK you are driving from, there is an easy way to get there in no time. Also, if you are a sportswoman or just want to be quite active, you can take your bike and ride down the cycle lanes that are available there.

If you want to hit the road but you don’t feel like driving, you have buses and coaches frequently leaving London and other major metropolis heading to Leeds. They’re a cheap and efficient method, especially if you get a student Metrocard which will lower the prices even more.

Going by train is another great choice. There is a two and a half hour train ride between London and Leeds, but other areas of the UK are also connected via railroad, so you can get there from any place. If you want to try even other options, you can simply fly there, for the Leeds-Bradford International Airport is barely 8 miles north. You can book a taxi service in advance or ask for one when you arrive there; these cars will take you right to Leeds. And one last thing: you can even get there by ferry, because the Hull port is really close as well.

First of all, Leeds has a very active daylife with lots of places to perform sports and physical activities. So, if you want to see some great matches or even do something by yourselves, there are plenty of choices for you. You can go check Elland Road, where Leeds United plays – extra point for LU fans – or some other international sporting venues: Yorkshire County Cricket Club and Leeds Rugby League Club. If you like practicing other sports, Leeds has a tonne of sportsfields, tennis courts, a skateboard park and even an Olympic-sized swimming pool. For those who are more into nature, there are great places to go cycling, walking or just sightseeing: the Yorkshire Dales, the Valey of York and North York Moors. You can choose whatever you like the most and breathe some fresh air into your lungs before the night shake!

Planning a stag party – how important is it?

A stag party is a very important event associated with the wedding. A wedding is mostly a once in a lifetime event hence every celebration associated with it becomes very important for the couple. When it comes to the day of wedding, the party after the ceremony is usually a formal gathering which has the friends and family of the couple in attendance. The real fun and enjoyment actually happens in the pre-wedding bashes. The two most prominent pre-wedding bashes are the stag party and the hen party which are organized in the honor of the groom to be and bride to be respectively.

A stag party is a very special treat for the groom to be. The fact is that most men are often confused, stressed and tensed as their wedding day approaches because of their growing concern towards the impending responsibilities. To just take the groom to be away from the gloomy, stressful thoughts and to make him truly enjoy his time with his friends, the best man usually organizes the stag party or the stag weekend.

A Classic Blend of Modernity and Antiquity

Every moment that you spend in the lovely West Yorkshire city of Leeds is a revelation in itself. As a visitor to Leeds, you are bound to get entranced by the infectious charm of the city. Constantly alive and abuzz with activity, this gorgeous city is one of the major hubs of nightlife, sports and university events across UK, and hold a myriad of unlimited delights and excitement in store for you, be it in the form of its superb stag parties, fascinating displays at its museums, its myriad playhouses, great shopping and delectable culinary offerings.

On one hand you have the most awe-inspiring Georgian and Victorian architecture, and on the other hand there is a sizzling nightlife and a number of vivacious activities and cultural events that will keep you on your toes.

The perks of planning a group trip

Vacarions and journeys are often more enjoyable when we share them with people we like. Be it friends, family or coworkers, every trip is a chance to have a great time with our loved ones, or just people whose company we enjoy.

However, if you have been through the experience of organizing a group trip, you can agree that it is an extremely difficult and exhausting task to take to an end. Even if everyone in the group happens to be fully collaborative and willing to make an effort to make the trip happen, coordinating a group is a real mess. Everyone has to agree on where to go and what to do, some -or even all of them- bring their own ideas and places and plans, and you must combine all of these proposals and select them under everybody’s agreement. Money is another difficult point, because you must always do the math on how to divide expenses, and then make sure that everybody has paid until the last penny.
