Your Nice-Leeds Bradford direct flight

As Great Britain is not part of the Schengen Territories, you’ll need to go through customs - in addition to security screenings - before going to your gate. This can take time. So be sensible about when you arrive at the airport. One hour and a half are the minimum needed if you’re travelling with cabin baggage only. Add an additional 15 minutes should you need to go to the Jet2.com counter to drop off bags or collect your ticket.

Two cities for the price of one! It’d be a shame to deny yourself this opportunity. Especially as these two neighbours are nothing alike. Home to a large Pakistani community and a rich architectural heritage, Bradford is as traditional as it is exotic. And Leeds, with its first-rate university which nurtures young, talented artists is at once bourgeois and bohemian. You’ll find something new every day!

Take advantage of the great weather from May to September to head to the north of England with your clan and explore these two cities that, while discreet, merit the detour.
During the day, take in the oh-so-British streets of Bradford, which count nearly 6,000 historical - and thus protected - buildings. The city is proud of its industrial legacy, which was based in textiles before being opened up to the automotive and electronics industries. It's so proud in fact that most of the city's museums tell the story of one part or another of the local economy, from the industrial revolution to the internet age.
At night however, Leeds is the place to be. With 5 universities playing host to more than 200,000 students each year, the capital of Yorkshire is one of the most festive in a country that knows how to have a good time. The ambiance on banks of the Aire won’t let you down! Pubs, bars, restaurants, concert halls and night clubs: you won’t run out of places to go. Just be sure not to get to bed too late, or you’ll miss out on the three other local specialities: art, shopping, and the art of the good life.
The top 10 things to do in Leeds BradfordSee more See less
- Stroll through the historic centre of Bradford, a veritable open-air museum of Victorian architecture. Continue until you get to Little Germany, a stylish district built by the first textile fortunes in the 19th century.
- Go back in time to the beginning of the Industrial Revolution by visiting Saltaire Village on the outskirts of Bradford. Factories, housing, public buildings: everything is of the era. UNESCO got it right when they made this village a World Heritage site.
- Head into the best museum in Bradford, and one of the largest in this part of England: the National Media Museum. Here you’ll find the history of film, television, photography, and the internet told in a way that’s both fun and captivating.
- Make your way to Millennium Square, the nerve centre of Leeds. Check out City Hall. Visit Leeds City Museum which brings ancient and natural history together with the fine arts. Have a drink at a café or a pint in a pub.
- Put on your nicest chain mail and tour the Royal Armouries Museum to learn about military history. A jaw-dropping, 5-storey armoury filled with weaponry from every era the world over.
- Follow the Meanwood Valley Trail, a waymarked footpath that will take you all around Leeds over 11 kilometres. Starting from city-centre and leading to Golden Acre Park, you’ll pass a charming series of gardens, footbridges, tunnels and aqueducts.
- Fill up your shopping bags with clothes, jewellery, knick-knacks and trinkets, and fill your stomach with spring rolls, kebabs and curries as you wander through the hundreds of stands at Kirkgate Market. It’s worth seeing if only for the exquisite Belle Epoque building that houses it.
- Get in some great window shopping: on Briggate Avenue, the most beautiful street in the city; in Victoria Quarter, with its gorgeous covered galleries dating to the Belle Epoque; or at Corn Exchange, formerly a Victorian-era agricultural market, now an ultra-trendy shopping centre.
- Have a pint in one the many ancient pubs in Leeds. Raise your glasses on Call Lane, the most festive street in the city. You’ll find New Briggate, Millennium Square and Brewery Wharf all buzzing with energy as well. Great for a night out!
- Relax in the Russian banya and large pool at Bramley Baths. Locals have been going there for over a century to unwind. It’s spotless and immaculate yet delightfully old-fashioned.

What is the best time of year to visit Leeds Bradford?
We won’t lie to you: in winter, Leeds and Bradford can be wet - very wet. The sun comes out most often from spring and until the first weeks of autumn. It’s during summer that it's most present, though never overbearing. Your sunscreen budget won’t break the bank! England isn't exactly known for its incredible weather. No, if you're crossing the Channel, it’s more likely you’re going to enjoy the festive atmosphere and incomparable culture. Leeds is a testament to this reputation every weekend of the year, and even more so during its many festivals: Live at Leeds and Slam Dunk Festival (in May), Let's Rock Leeds! (in June), the Otley Folk Festival (in September), and of course, the most famous of all and biggest music festival in all of England, the Leeds Festival (at the end of August).
