Emmerdale Studio Experience
We’ll head into central Leeds for our visit to the Emmerdale Studio Experience, which offers a fascinating insight into one of Britain’s most iconic TV shows. See the interior sets for Bernice’s Salon and The Dingles’ living room, and discover what it’s like to act out a scene in Smithy Cottage as your Emmerdale Studio Experience guide talks you through past storylines and unique displays of props and memorabilia. Interactive elements will show you some of the special effects used to create iconic scenes such as the helicopter crash that devastated Pete and Debbie’s wedding, and Cameron Murray’s death during the flooding of the Woolpack cellar. After finishing your guided tour of the Emmerdale Studio sets, enjoy free time in the centre of Leeds to hit the shops or just relax in one of the many bars, cafes or restaurants on offer.
Located in the heart of the beautiful Holme Valley, Holmfirth is a small town that sits just north of the Peak District in West Yorkshire. The town is better known as the location for the popular BBC TV series Last of the Summer Wine, with thousands of fans making the journey every year to visit such locations as Sid’s Cafe and Nora Batty’s Steps. With its breath-taking scenery across the Holme Valley, Holmfirth is also popular with walkers and wildlife enthusiasts alike, and if that isn’t enough there are some wonderful attractions to be seen in the town itself. It is also home to a wide range of eating places, including restaurants, wine bars, pubs take-always that cater for a wide variety of tastes.
Set on the south bank of the River Aire, Leeds is famous for many things including its football team but the most popular attraction for many visitors is the Royal Armouries, which houses the national collection of arms and artillery. Across the river, the redeveloped industrial area around Call Lane is famed for bars and live music venues under converted railway arches. For those looking for a bargain or to pick up some traditional local Yorkshire fayre, then Leeds Kirkgate Market could be for you, featuring hundreds of indoor and outdoor stalls. Whatever your interest, though, Leeds will provide you with a fascinating experience that will live long in the memory.
