Golden Acre Park #Leeds

137 acres of park including Breary Marsh, a cherry orchard, wildlife pond, cafe and more. A beautiful place to spend an afternoon, lots of space for children to run around. I had a fun time feeding squirrels as well as taking in the sites of the gardens and woodland trails.

Royal Armouries #Leeds

Royal Armouries is the United Kingdom’s national museum of arms and armour, including artillery.

With it being such a nice day and I haven’t been out and about much I decided to have a potter about Leeds and check out a few of our places to visit and started with Royal Armouries. I’ve been here a few times but not for several years. I remember when my son was younger we would come for the annual jousting tournaments. These are still held but have less appeal now my son is an adult although that’s not to say other adults wouldn’t like it.

For anyone with an interest in war and military history, war and weapons this is a fascinating place.2015-08-08 13.00.59 2015-08-08 13.34.04 2015-08-08 13.34.46 2015-08-08 13.34.54 2015-08-08 13.37.04 2015-08-08 13.37.28 2015-08-08 13.46.27
