Great Leeds Valentines Fair

Founded in Leeds city centre in 1992, this February half-term event paved the way for other Valentines funfairs around the country but remains one of the biggest and best

Since 2000, the event has been held at Elland Road, where it has expanded to take advantage of parking facilities next to Leeds Utd football stadium and easy access from the M621. Meanwhile a regular bus service provides convenient public transport to the city centre.

Leeds Christkindelmarkt and Ice Cube

Winter has become one of our busiest times of year, with these two enchanting events in Millennium Square, Leeds.

The Christkindelmarkt, which extends into Cookridge Street and the Headrow, is one of Yorkshire’s most authentic Christmas markets. As well as festive stalls selling unique gifts and warming winter treats such as Bratwurst and Glühwein, the event also features a traditional English carousel plus other family-friendly rides and attractions.

Just weeks after the Christkindelmarkt has left town, we’re back in Millennium Square with the Ice Cube. Staged for a full month, including the February half-term holidays, the event includes a large undercover ice rink plus winter-themed rides. Ice princesses welcome!
