Well, I say Leeds because technically it is in Leeds. But, it is not in the city centre. Only visit these guys if you’re driving or you’re going to the student-y side of Leeds anyway. Don’t take a £13 round trip in an Uber for one like we did. Doh. (Lol, just read that back, not an intentional doughnut pun, I’m just gonna leave that in there…). It was almost worth it though because these guys are insanely delicious.
The north of England is not the warmest of places, but natives of the area don’t let this dampen their spirits. The “grim north” is notorious for it’s bad weather. Don’t let this deter you. Northerners are a super friendly, welcoming bunch and they know how to have a good time.
Blackpool. Home of the famous Tower, The Pleasure Beach and a tonne of traditional seaside charm. One of the most popular destinations for hen and stag weekends, Blackpool is busy and bustling, and full of booze. Drinks are cheap, the pubs are tacky, but it still holds an unfathomable charm. The Tower’s famous ballroom is breathtaking. It’s more than worth a visit. you can even make like Strictly and dance on the hallowed sprung dance floor! The Lancashire city is a strange mix of contradiction, faded grandeur and 70’s style seaside fun. Check out the Pleasure Beach with the vintage wooden rollercoaster.
