A major part of Leeds, Roundhay is a large suburb in the North East of the city. It is believed that the town has been here since the mid-12th century, firstly used as an estate for hunting and later, when valuable mines were founded, for coal and iron ore mining. These activities dried up and so Roundhay became agricultural and residential land. The town became part of the growing city of Leeds in 1912 and is now an important part of the city.
The main attractions in Roundhay are the Mansion and the Park. The Mansion dates from 1811 and is in a classical style. It was positioned above the extensive park to make the best of amazing views over the local countryside. It is an important architectural landmark in the area and is now used as a venue for corporate events, weddings and the like and contains a well-appointed restaurant and café to cater to visitors. It attracts a lot of attention for corporate and private events, bringing the Mansion back to life after it was empty for a number of years. The local council is very dedicated to the rejuvenation of the area and the Mansion has been a successful part of this.
Roundhay Park is truly an impressive space, dominating over 700 acres of land, mainly parkland, forest and lakes. This makes it one of the largest city parks in the whole of Europe and as such it attract many visitors each year as well as being a very popular spot with local people. Within the park a wide range of activities are available for anyone who wants to try them out… how about cycling, running, sports, football, cricket or walking? If it all sounds a bit tame why not try water activities such as canoeing, rowing or dragon boat racing? For children there are rides, funfairs and a whole host of events throughout the year to encourage children and families to get out and enjoy the park. So whether you are interested in geology or are seeking some fresh organic local produce at the farmers market, Roundhay Park generally has something for absolutely everyone.
