God’s Own Country has it all, beautiful beaches, incredible national parks, plenty of great eateries including some of the best fish & chips offers in the UK and now one of its best cities has been named the best day out in the UK.
According to a survey by Tombola Gambling, Leeds, West Yorkshire was named the best city in the UK. It looked at the number of reviews mentioning these seven words: ‘scenic’, ‘lovely walk’, ‘green space’, ‘well worth a visit’, ‘fish and chips’, ‘Sunday lunch’ and ‘Sunday dinner’.
They then scored each in an index to find the ultimate day out and Leeds came out on top with a score of 64 points across four points, looking at Sunday lunch reviews, fish and chips reviews, top parks and free attractions.
It was a massive 10 points ahead of its closest competitor Nottingham, scoring highest for both Sunday lunch and best park.
So if you’re looking for a walk and a Sunday roast then get over to Leeds and get stuck into some proper good grub after a walk in one of its leafy parks.
The likes of Roundhay Park and Golden Acre are perfect for a potter around before heading for a coffee, and the city centre has plenty for families to get on with.
Likewise, the northern city also scored top points for the best park, with 20% of all reviews mentioning the words ‘scenic’, ‘lovely walk’ and ‘green space’.
