Leeds offers luxurious shopping and dining without compromising on culture with plenty of art galleries and museums. This makes Leeds an attractive destination for those wanting to experience both culture and luxury together in one place. Getting to Leeds by train is easy, with the journey taking just over two hours from London.


With shopping centres such as the Metro Centre, Newcastle could easily be shopping haven. There are also historical monuments including Durham Castle, a Roman Fort and Belsie House.
