We went to Leeds for two main reasons, I wanted to see Elland Road the home of Leeds United Football Club which was one of the grounds I had never seen and to visit the set of Emmerdale.

From Edinburgh to Leeds took about 4 hours with the odd break thrown in! We probably went the longest route travelling down the Eastern coastline. I noticed when we went into Scotland the huge banners saying ‘Welcome to Scotland’ yet I never even knew I had entered England until I looked up my location on Google, something I think needs to change! We need a Welcome to England sign!!

We stayed in a Hotel which we booked on Bookings.com called the High Bank Hotel which was in a poor state in parts with renovation works going on. The fees did not reflect that, but all the same it was comfortable and the breakfast was great!

Elland Road was a little disappointing but what did I expect from a football ground lol, we didn’t stay too long but I managed to get to see what I had always wanted to see, just want to go there one day when Stoke City meet them now.

The people / actors at the Emmerdale set were very friendly, well those we met, and although it took a while Andrea and Emily managed to have a picture or two with them. Although we tried to get a look at the set itself, which we failed to achieve, the day was somewhat of a success. I even tried to get a drive through part with the Mini, that was accepted as a good idea but maybe for another day! I still await that call – could be a long time coming 😉
