Your Top 10 favourite historical spots in Leeds – #RSH Guides

Posted on

It’s Friday, and that can only mean one thing – it’s time to announce the winners of our weekly competition. This time around, 10 savvy commuters won £10’s worth of loyalty points by tweeting their top tips to us at #RSH Guides, for us to share through foursquare. This week, we asked you for your favourite historical spots in Leeds.

Read on for this week’s winning tips and find out where to go to see the best historical sites in Leeds…

• History buff @Ltsteamfan took the first spot on our winner’s list this week with a hot tip to hop on board The Middleton Railway in Hunslet, in operation since 1758.

• Our next tour guide to make the top ten list, @RemiTheBoardman earned a spot with an insider’s nod to venture to the Dark Arches, a network of tunnels under the city’s railway station and a feat of engineering.

@MaddalenaMad landed on this week’s winner’s list with some expert advice, suggesting a visit to Temple Newsam, one of the most celebrated houses in the country.

• For a blend of old and new, @tommymc93 landed in the top ten this week with a great shout to visit the shops and restaurants at the Leeds Corn Exchange, an architectural wonder that’s now home to independent retailers from all over the UK.

@JassyJemka earned those loyalty points too this week by recommending a visit to Harewood house and gardens, offering visitors plenty of activities to entertain.

• For an afternoon of family fun, @squidly777 recommends a visit to Thwaite Mills Watermill, one of the best examples of a water-powered mill in Britain.

@HansonLdn cruised into the top ten this week with a top tip to visit the city’s oldest building, Leeds Town Hall, an exciting centre for concerts, film screenings and more.

@suenatal raked in the prize points as well this week, with a great shout to catch a taste of Italy at the Tower Works, inspired by great Italian architecture of yesteryear.

@johnhillsport passed on a great recommendation to stop by Thackary Medical Museum and see how medicine has evolved from Victorian times to present day.

• And pulling in the last of this week’s points, @jaffawine steamed into the top ten with a tourguide’s tip to catch a glimpse of the industrial revolution at Armley Mills and learn about the influence cotton had on the area.

Congratulations to this week’s winners – and thanks for all of your Twitter recommendations! If you didn’t win this week, don’t worry – you could win in next week’s competition.
