I never planned on writing a blog post solely reviewing the hotel, but we had such a lovely time here that I had to! So here it is.
The Man Behind The Curtain: A Review

The Man Behind The Curtain: A Review

Leeds
Before I get into this post I have to admit that I don't have many pictures to share. As it was a once in a lifetime kind of meal, I wanted to fully immerse myself in the experience rather than worry about getting the right shot of each of the 14 (yes, 14!!!) courses. Sometimes you just have to enjoy the moment.

Hi, I'm Nell. I’m a Leeds based travel blogger creating content to inspire you to make the most of your weekends, limited annual leave and hard-earned cash by writing about part-time, mid-budget travel. Here you'll find posts about city breaks, hiking trips and tales of food and wine.

A Yorkshire Adventure to White Scar Cave

A Yorkshire Adventure to White Scar Cave

Ingleborough
Yorkshire is perfect for a day out, whether you're entertaining the kids, spending time with a partner or having a solo adventure! There is so much beautiful countryside and a million things to do. This weekend Billy and I visited White Scar Cave in Ingleborough, North Yorkshire. My Christmas present to Billy this year was 'a year of fun', which has consisted of me planning a day out/activity/event to do together once a month for the next year. This was January's treat and an attraction that I would highly recommend to anyone. 
5 Reasons To Love Leeds Kirkgate Market

5 Reasons To Love Leeds Kirkgate Market

Leeds
Whether I'm at home or travelling, I do my best to support the local economy by shopping with local businesses and eating at independent restaurants. If I can get a bargain at the same time, I'm even happier! This is one of the main reasons that Leeds Kirkgate Market is my favourite thing about living in Leeds.
A Hunt for the Best Sushi in Leeds

A Hunt for the Best Sushi in Leeds

Leeds
I love sushi, I could eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner every day and not get sick of it (I think). It's also my go-to hangover food, which a lot of people find odd, but the freshness of the fish, the stodgy rice and the salty soy sauce offer the perfect combination for recovering from having one too many. I also love Leeds and everything it has to offer, but recently the sushi game in this wonderful city is starting to lack. Here's why:

The Best Restaurants in Leeds

The Best Restaurants in Leeds

Leeds
We are absolutely spoilt for restaurants in Leeds. Whichever cuisine you fancy and whatever your budget, the issue is never finding a suitable place to dine but rather deciding between the endless options. On top of that, there seems to be somewhere new opening every week, so even when you think you've tried it all you're suddenly no longer an expert. To help with matters, I've come up with a list of my favourite Leeds restaurants. If you're visiting for the weekend or you're hungry and can't decide where to eat, read on!
Holy SH*T: A Beginner’s Guide to Underground Pro Wrestling

Holy SH*T: A Beginner’s Guide to Underground Pro Wrestling

Leeds
All I knew about wrestling was that it's choreographed (which I thought meant fake) and that men wearing lycra had to throw each other around a ring and pin their opponent to the floor for 3 seconds to win. It turns out there's so much more to it, and actually it's a really fun night out that I would highly recommend! Here's my beginners guide to Underground Pro Wrestling for those who want an unusual night out in Leeds and want to know what to expect.
A Steamy Day Out at the KWVR Beer Festival

A Steamy Day Out at the KWVR Beer Festival

Leeds
Any of you who have family, especially parents, that don't live in the same part of the country, or even world, as you will have experienced the stress of trying to find something to do when they come to visit. Often you might have a parent who wants to visit some museums and understand the history of where you live, whilst the other parent wants to explore the countryside. And then throw in a sister/boyfriend/cousin/grandmother who would rather just go to the pub and it can be rather tricky!
