The city is a short drive away from the famous Yorkshire Dales, home to some of the finest limestone scenery in the UK and offering excellent recreational activities such as cycling, walking and water sports. For those who like to enjoy a more relaxed leisure time, Saltaire, a UNESCO world heritage site and home to a collection of David Hockney’s work lies a short distance away.
